Beerburrum Trailhead Concept Plan

Glass House Mountains

Council is planning to develop basic trailhead facilities in Beerburrum, in partnership with Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS), to enhance the user experience in the region. These works are focused on connecting the township to the national parks in a more effective way, and to connect the trails to the rail line to provide a ‘rail to trail’ functionality for the Glass House Mountains region.

Purpose

Council is developing a draft concept landscape plan to guide detailed planning for Parrot Park Bushland Reserve’s current parking area to allow it to function as a new southern trailhead for the Glass House Mountains National Park. The plan is focused primarily on the trailhead facility.

The concept plan aims to:

  • inform opportunities for improvements
  • enhance the site’s attractiveness to visitors to the region
  • determine the recreation opportunities and constraints of the site
  • improve access to trail network
  • reflect the community’s vision, priorities and hopes for the future of the Beerburrum township.

Community engagement

Council invites the community to provide feedback on the Beerburrum Trailhead Draft Concept Plan.

A public Community Information Session is being held on 24 May 2018 at 5.00pm to 6.30pm at the Beerburrum Community Hall to open the consultation period.

Submissions close 24 June 2018.


Where to from here

A revised concept landscape plan based on feedback from the community will be released to the community in July 2018.
