There is a lot of interest in the route the Coastal Walking track will take in or through the new Western Bushland National Park.

Randwick City Council, which has overall responsibility for the section of the track from Clovelly to La Perouse, is working with the two land owners (NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) and the Commonwealth Government) on the design of the proposed walking track.

The design must consider the needs of various categories of walkers for a safe and suitable route, the concerns of neighbouring residents and the protection of the park from the damage that might result from a high volume of pedestrian traffic.

NPWS is likely to exhibit a draft Plan of Management for the new National Park in early 2013. This plan will include details of public access to the park and the proposed walking track. The draft plan will be ‬open for community input.
