The creation of Coast Walk a breathtaking walking experience from Manly to Palm Beach - is a step closer with the new Northern Beaches Coast Walk Public Art Strategic Plan.

While construction continues on sections of the walkway to create a continuous 36km walkway, the Coast Walk Public Art Strategic Plan has been developed to enhance the cultural, heritage and natural significance of the area.

Northern Beaches Council Mayor Michael Regan said when complete, the Coast Walk would be an incredible addition to the Northern Beaches.

“We are creating a distinctive and recognisable Northern Beaches Coast Walk, it will be something truly special.

“The experience for users of the Coast Walk will be enhanced significantly with high quality art and sculptures.

“The artworks will add further vibrancy to the walk, as well as draw a direct connection between the villages, beaches and headlands stretching from the north to the south of the peninsula,’’ the Mayor said.

A minimum of ten works are expected to be delivered in stage one of the project, with more included at stage two to deliver in excess of $2 million of public art along the Coast Walk.
Select sites along the Coast Walk will be prioritised for inclusion in the first instance, incorporating the likes of popular attractions such as Manly Corso (beachside), Dee Why Headland, Long Reef Headland, North Narrabeen rock pool and Avalon Beach.

Plans are also in place to develop a web app that will guide the community along the walk – highlighting areas of natural and heritage significance as well as provide commentary on any installed artworks.

Additionally, Council will soon be calling for artists to tender to create new works for the Coast Walk and will also develop a panel of artists for various projects.

For artists looking to tender, keep an eye out for opportunities on Council’s website.
