Sydney’s Coastal Walkway will be detoured around pinch points at Gordons Bay and Lurline Bay as part of changes in place for the Easter long weekend commencing Friday 10 April 2020.

The Coastal Walkway along the Randwick City coastline remains open to encourage exercise, but both Gordons Bay (Located between Coogee and Clovelly) and Lurline Bay (located at Maroubra) will no longer be accessible.

Randwick Council staff wearing blue ‘spread kindness not germs’ tshirts will be out in numbers to advise people about the diversions and to encourage people to maintain social distancing when exercising.
