Work is progressing on upgrades to Glass House Mountains National Park, after the Palaszczuk Government allocated $3.03 million to improve walking tracks, picnic areas, carparks and a lookout.

In the Sunshine Coast region today, Minister for Environment Leeanne Enoch said the number of visitors to Glass House Mountains National Park were increasing every year, and the Palaszczuk Government was committed to providing more recreation options and improving safety.

“We are delivering on our commitment to upgrade facilities at National Parks across Queensland, including at Glass House Mountains, to enhance the experience for our visitors,” Ms Enoch said.

“The upgrades to Glass House Mountains National Parks is part of the $35 million Revitalising National Parks program.

“This area is increasingly popular with nature lovers, hikers, climbers, cyclists, trail runners, photographers, four-wheel drivers and picnicking families and these upgrades will help benefit everyone who visit this wonderful area.”

The upgrades are due to finish by mid-2020, and include upgrades of the Mount Tibrogargan walking tracks and day-use area in Glass House Mountains National Park, and the Coochin Creek campground and day-use area at nearby Beerburrum State Forest.

Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service is working on consultation with Traditional Owners with Traditional Owners on these upgrades.

“Planning has started on an upgrade of the Glass House Mountains lookout and on concepts for upgrading the track network at Mount Ngungun,” Ms Enoch said.

“Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service is also working closely with the Sunshine Coast Regional Council to develop opportunities in the Glass House landscape.”  

Ms Enoch said under the Queensland-wide program, critical infrastructure was being renewed to enhance visitor experiences and boost ecotourism opportunities.

“In the Sunshine Coast region, the Palaszczuk Government is also investing in other national parks, including major walking track and public infrastructure upgrades at Noosa National Park, and $420 000 towards upgrading the summit trail at Mount Coolum National Park.

“Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service is also working with local groups to continue to develop and enhance mountain biking opportunities at Tewantin National Park, Parklands Conservation Park and Beerwah State Forest.”
