The Glass House Mountains National Park will become one of four new must-see ecotourism destinations across Queensland, thanks to new high-end visitor attractions being rolled out by the Palaszczuk Government.
The popular day-trip spot for South-east Queenslanders would receive an upgrade so more people can go bushwalking, trail running, mountain biking and horse-riding, as part of a $3.03 million upgrade.
National Parks Minister Steven Miles said the project was part of a $40 million investment by the Palaszczuk Government to attract more visitors to Queensland national parks.
"Queensland has the best national parks in the world but right now when people think ecotourism they think Tasmania.
"The Palaszczuk Government is going to turn that around.
"Tourists are increasingly looking for premium options which is why glamping has become so popular.
"These upgrades will attract more visitors to the region and the state."
Other national parks getting new million-dollar facilities include the Daintree National Park, Whitsunday Island and Lamington National Park at the Gold Coast.
Labor candidate for Glass House Brent Hampstead said the upgrade would boost the local economy and create jobs.
"The Glass House Mountains are possibly Queensland's most stunning natural landforms," Mr Hampstead said.
"Improving the range of activities tourists can undertake in our gorgeous Glass House Mountains National Park will increase visitors' length of stay, and expenditure per trip.
"And that's great news for local businesses here in Glass House.
"The Palaszczuk Government's committed to making sure the Sunshine Coast hinterland thrives, which is why we'll continue to develop our local tourism industry, while protecting our natural assets."
The Palaszczuk Government will also deliver new ecotourism projects for national parks across the state, including:
A 2.11 million upgrade to the Daintree National Park - the world-famous rainforest would receive a new boardwalk through the forest, as well as walking tracks and lookouts, as part of the $2.11 million upgrade.
A $10.9 million upgrade to Whitsunday Island - The Whitsundays will receive a multi-day walking track and new accommodation in the form of luxury 'eco-lodges'. The complete project also features a new Hill Inlet Lookout, a 20 kilometre multi day walking track connecting Whitehaven Beach to Tongue Point, and new day use and camping areas at Whitehaven beach.
A $1.48 million upgrade to the walking tracks in Lamington National Park - Lamington National Park is one of the most popular rainforest bushwalking destinations in Australia. A re-elected Palaszczuk Government will upgrade and replace the walking tracks and design a new Binna Burra Visitor Centre.
