Mareeba Shire is a great place to get outdoors and be active. There are a range of walking and cycling paths that allow you to get out and explore this beautiful region.

Council’s Walking Networks

The Queensland Walking Strategy 2019–2029 sets out the actions needed to create more walkable communities and encourage more people to walk, and Council provides footpaths and walking tracks in the Shire’s towns to facilitate this.

In conjunction with the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR), Council has adopted a Walking Network Plan and a Priority Works Program for the Shire’s largest towns, Mareeba and Kuranda. The Walking Network Plans are intended to provide a future Master Plan of primary and secondary walking routes and represent both the existing and desired future footpaths. Therefore, the plans should not be used for navigational purposes. The Priority Works Programs have been developed to identify the priority, timing and indicative costs of infrastructure upgrades for future planning.

Mareeba Shire Council acknowledges funding received from the Queensland Government to complete the Walking Network Plans.
