A new boardwalk constructed by the Port Macquarie-Hastings Council is being applauded by the Bonny Hills Progress Association.

The association is working with council to get several projects from the Bonny Hills Community Plan up and running, according to president Roger Barlow.

"Council are tackling parts of the track that are boggy or that sort of thing. We have been dealing with them by identifying where signage or repairs are needed to fix eroded sections," he said.

"The whole project has been slowed by floods, fires and the like but now we are making a bit of progress. We have now got the boardwalk and a set of stairs from Sharkies Beach.

"The boardwalk in particular is a very nice job. They have done a hell of a good job on it."

Mr Barlow said the association has submitted advice calling for more signage and repairs in the area.

"There is some erosion at the northern end near the quarry and around the Grants Head part of the track," he said.

"Overall the major problem now is signage because there are places where people can take the wrong path by mistake.

"The wildflower loop at North Haven is a classic example of a very pretty track which is easy to get lost in and something not widely known to visitors.

"We have mapped out and submitted to council where they could place signs."
