The mangrove forest, on the Mangrove Walk, provides a point of natural divergence in the path, allowing pedestrians to stroll slowly on one side and cyclists to speed through on the other. At the southern end of the Walk, the new Boathouse Pavilion has spectacular views up and down the river. Serving coffee and food, it is very popular with cyclists and walkers alike. Below this is a small, safe, launch facility for non-motorised craft, such as canoes and kayaks.
Spaced at regular intervals along the boardwalk are a series of landings and lookouts, or ‘islands’, which punctuate the journey with seating nooks to enjoy the view.
CUSP delivered the project in Revit, a pioneering move in the Australian landscape architectural profession at the time. This allowed for precise documentation for the delivery of the complex structures, providing high quality cost-control, efficient co-ordination and strong client confidence.
