Nambour Coolum Recreation Trail Feasibility Study
The Sunshine Coast Recreation Trails Plan 2012 recommended that a recreation trail following the historic route of the cane train between Nambour to Coolum be investigated.
The Sunshine Coast Council engaged Inspiring Place to undertake research, extensive stakeholder engagement and site investigations necessary to determine a preferred route(s) for and the overall feasibility of a recreation trail linking the towns of Coolum, Bli Bli and Nambour.
The feasibility process identified the greatest value of the trail was in meeting local needs for quality recreational trails between the destinations and for recreational walking and fitness training, particularly close to local hubs on trail segments of moderate length. An implementation plan identified the priorities, costs and staging of the works.
