Helicopter lifting building supplies into Malabar Headland National Park

We’re making great progress on the construction of the Malabar Headland Western Escarpment Walking Track, a track which will provide a direct connection between South Maroubra and Malabar Beaches. 

Council have been working with National Parks and Wildlife Service and Fleetwood Urban Pty Ltd for the past month to install an on-ground trail, boardwalks, access structures, stairs and other landscaping works.

Once complete, the track will link with the National Parks and Wildlife Service Boora Point Walking Track which follows the coastline, meaning walkers will have the choice of a 3km coastal walk, 1km inland walk or do both for a 4km loop around Malabar Headland. 

With work well underway, it's likely to be completed by the end of 2017 - watch this space!
