We're working to improve access to Kingston's beaches. As part of this commitment, we're planning to extend the boardwalk from its current northern termination point near Stephens Street to the Patterson River, Carrum.

The existing southern section of boardwalk was constructed in 2012. The extension to Patterson River was delayed due to the demolition of the Patterson River Motor Boat Club. The club building has now been demolished and the rock sea wall has been constructed in the gap so it’s now appropriate to complete the final section to meet up with the Patterson River.

The new section of boardwalk will complement the look of the existing boardwalk. The alignment of the boardwalk will be carefully designed to minimise vegetation removal, retain the existing bluestone wall, avoid any impact to the existing sea rock wall, align with accessibility standards and minimise the elevation to blend in with the surrounding environment. The adjacent car park will be modified to include two fully compliant accessible parking bays with access for all abilities to reach the beach and new boardwalk and will receive a pavement upgrade.

A viewing platform and seating off the boardwalk to enjoy the beautiful views will be included along with solar lighting along the boardwalk and in the car park.  Interpretive signage will be installed on the viewing platform to recognise the previous site of the Patterson River Boat Club.

The boardwalk extension is scheduled for delivery in 2024/25.
