The walking trail to Black Cliff in Hallett Cove Conservation Park is being upgraded to enable access for prams and assisted wheelchairs.
The entire length of the 550m trail, starting at the Park’s southern entrance and ending at Black Cliff/Black Point, is being paved to create a smooth, non-slip surface.
The trail connects with the existing boardwalk, providing a 925m trail to the lookout near Waterfall Creek, or a 1.8km return walk.
Other improvements include removal of the entry chicane and a reduction in the steepness of the path at the park entrance, allowing easier access for prams and wheelchairs.
The path has also been widened to allow visitors to stop and read park interpretive signs without blocking others.
Works will commence in August 2017 and during construction detours will be in place.

The current trail was featured in a recent PushAdventures.com.au blog post, so the trail upgrade will be welcomed by all.
The $140,000 improvements at Hallett Cove are part of the State Government’s commitment of $10.4 million to upgrade metropolitan national parks and reserves for the growing number of local residents who use outdoor recreational spaces and to make our parks and reserves more accessible and inclusive.
