Cotton Tree Parade - Beach Access Viewing Platform

Proposed location for viewing platform

Council has identified a site at Maroochydore Beach to build a small viewing platform.

This site is currently used by visitors and locals as an informal viewing point.

Purpose

Would you like to see a timber viewing platform constructed at the northern end of Maroochydore Beach?

It would have views out to Mt Coolum, Pincushion and Mudjimba (Old Woman) Islands, and Point Cartwright. The formalised access would help prevent damage to the dune caused by unrestricted pedestrian traffic.

See the proposed location details on the image below.

The proposed platform will be designed with minimal visual and environmental impacts to the site.

Council set up an online poll on Facebook to determine the level of support for this project. Submissions closed 5pm, 8 December 2017.

Where to from here

The project is currently at the initial scoping and feasibility stage. If this project is supported by the community, detailed design and construction will be scheduled in council’s Capital Works Program, pending available funding and state government approvals.
