Mayor Karen Williams said work would start on October 25 on a 25 metre section which would be completed by late November, weather permitting.

"The Gorge Walk is an iconic destination on Minjerribah so I am very pleased it will soon be repaired ahead of the busy Christmas holiday period," she said.

"While this beautiful walk has still been accessible from each end, the damaged section, roughly in the middle of the walk, has been closed following a washout caused by heavy rain.

"... Importantly, residents and visitors can still safely access parts of the boardwalk while the damaged section is being repaired, so go out and enjoy the beautiful panoramas but take heed of site safety signage and don't enter the closed area."

"There are few places anywhere with such amazing views and opportunities for marine wildlife encounters, particularly one so accessible and free," he said.

SPECTACULAR: The boardwalk's striking views attract plenty of people but some get a little too close to the edge.
