The Tamworth Regional Skywalk is an exciting project which is expected to become an iconic tourist attraction for the Tamworth region, as well as protect the safety of local recreational walkers.

An elevated walking platform will be constructed from the top of Brisbane Street within Victoria Park up to the top of the Oxley Scenic Lookout, giving people the chance to enjoy the natural bushland of Victoria Park and its commanding views toward the Liverpool Ranges.

This project aligns with the Tamworth Regional Active Transport Strategy which aims to improve our participation in unstructured recreational activity and the associated benefits for the individual and the community. A core strategy of Council’s Blueprint 100 is also to make our region more liveable by providing improved social, cultural and physical amenities.

Why is this project important?

Scenic Road is currently used frequently by pedestrians wanting to access Oxley Lookout but poses a serious safety issue due to pedestrians sharing the narrow road with cars, and the sharp corners mean vehicles have poor lines of sight.

The skywalk will provide a safer alternate option and greatly increase usage by families, keen exercisers and those visiting the region.

This project was first earmarked during the community consultation in May 2021 for the development of the Victoria Park Master Plan. Residents felt that a safer pedestrian link to the lookout was an important consideration.

Concept designs

The final look and feel of the skywalk's design has not yet been finalised. See below some artist impressions that show what the skywalk could potentially look like.


On 3 March 2023, the NSW Government announced that the skywalk had been the recipient of $14.3 million in funding from the NSW Government’s Regional Tourism Activation Fund.

Tamworth Region Mayor Russell Webb joined Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson alongside several Council staff at the lookout to make the announcement.
