Bass Coast Shire Council recently completed the final stage of a clifftop pedestrian pathway through the Kilcunda Foreshore.

The 1.5 kilometre pedestrian pathway is an upgrade to a long established track leading from the town centre.

A compacted gravel surface has been installed over five stages since 2010.

The $50,000 project also includes installation of public seating and safety barriers.

“These works complete a four year project with the pedestrian pathway connecting the Kilcunda township to Mabilia Road, and is the initial section of the iconic George Bass Coastal Walk,” Anderson Ward Councillor, Bradley Drew, said.

“Prior to this project, the former path was a basic, grassed surface which become boggy and dangerous in winter.

“Damage was being done to our environment by people having to walk off the track to avoid these areas.

“Now the path and the spectacular views can be shared by many.”
