Cassowary Coast Regional Council is committed to fostering a pedestrian-friendly environment in Innisfail, prioritizing accessibility, safety, and an enhanced experience for all community members.

Alongside the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) Council is developing a Walking Network Plan to identify future projects to improve walking opportunities around Innisfail. The Queensland Government believes every Queenslander should be able to walk for transport, health and recreation.

The purpose of this project is to:

  • Create an Innisfail Walking Network Plan that benefits the community's overall travel patterns and transport needs
  • Understand how we can link footpath connections to our town centre
  • Identify primary and secondary destinations that our community needs to access
  • Identify initiatives that promote a culture of walking within Innisfail
  • Develop support for Innisfail’s Walking Network as a local and tourist recreational asset

As our town develops through future planning and the Innisfail CBD Master Plan, we need to ensure our recreational walking networks align with the needs of our community, are accessible and safe, and connect people to where they need to go.


To achieve this vision Council wants to understand community needs and expectations for the walking network, both now and in the future. The information provided by the community during this process will be used to assist in the development of an Innisfail Walking Network Plan.

Council invites community members to attend one of the Innisfail Walking Network Community Workshops held on Thursday 30 May 2024, hosted at Innisfail Disaster Coordination Centre

Community members can register their interests to attend one of the sessions from 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM or 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM.

Alternatively, community members are encouraged to participate by sharing their thoughts through an online survey and our interactive mapping tool. Tell us about your current walking routes, highlight areas of concern, and map out your desired pathways for the future. Whether you're on foot, skateboard, bicycle, or any other mode of transportation, your feedback matters.

Consultation is open until Sunday 9 June 2024.
