About Walk for Daniel 

The Daniel Morcombe Foundation held the first Walk for Daniel in November 2005. The walk follows the same path that Daniel walked from Palmwoods to arrive at the Nambour Connection Road in Woombye, where he waited for the bus to the Sunshine Plaza before being abducted and murdered. The walk is approximately 4km long, starting at Suncoast Christian College in Woombye and finishing at Briggs Park in Palmwoods.

The aim of this walk is to raise awareness of child safety and protection.

The objectives of Walk for Daniel are:

  • To raise awareness about child safety and to promote a safer community for children
  • To educate children regarding their personal safety
  • To honour the memory of Daniel Morcombe

Walk Route

The Walk will commence at Suncoast Christian College, Cnr Schubert & Kiel Mountain Road Woombye and conclude at Briggs Park on Jubilee Drive, Palmwoods. The walk is approximately 4kms in length on footpaths which are suitable for prams, strollers and wheelchairs. Water is provided at the start of the event. A Sausage Sizzle an coffee is available at the start and finish of the event.
