While the Lake Weyba Foreshore Walk has been a favourite with locals and visitors alike for  years, the addition in April 2024 of a new suspension bridge over Horseman Creek, means that hikers can now do the picturesque trail while keeping their feet (relatively ) dry.

The suspension bridge is one of four footbridges, new fire trails and signage,implemented by the Sunshine Coast Council, to make the existing trails at Lake Weyba more accessible, with the suspension bridge across Horseman Creek finalising the foreshore nature trail linking Lake Weyba to Peregian.

The walk is about 3.3km and consists of three legs including: from Charlotte Drive to Lakewood Drive, from Lakewood Drive to Barbara Road, and from Barbara Road to Annie Drive Park. The legs are located at trail heads, with sign-posted directions.

Improvement works also included wayfinding signs and bollards and resurfacing of one kilometre of the fire trail.

Access to the trails is classed at the National Grading System as Grade 4 (for experienced bushwalkers) which is used for for longer, rougher, steeper trails that are not always well-signposted or provide a clear track.  Much of the reason for the tougher grading is that the trail itself is subject to seasonal inundation and tides and can get quite boggy after rain, with overhanging vegetation that can make the track tricky .

This trail starts from carpark/boat launching area on the foreshore at southern end of Lake Weyba Drive and meanders along the lakeside. The sandy nature of the track and thick vegetation in parts – particularly the 200-300 metres on either side of the Horseman Creek suspension bridge-  make it hard going for bike riders who want to remain mounted.

Getting there from Eumarella Shores

For guests staying at Eumarella Shores, the start of the track is an easy 1 km walk – just head out onto Eumarella Road, then turn right on Lake Weyba Drive, and follow the foreshore to the carpark and boat launching area. The start of the trail is signposted there, close to the Lake.

Please note – this is not a loop trail – the end point is the same as the starting point.

Alternatively the trail can be accessed from the end of Charlotte Drive, Lakewood Drive or Annie Drive Park.
