Scenic Rim Trail Project Proposal
Now open for public feedback
Posted on 06.10.2017
The next stage of the Scenic Rim Trail project proposal is now open for public feedback.
Gainsdale Pty Ltd (owners of Spicers Retreats) have published the draft preliminary documentation for the Scenic Rim Trail project, as a proposed action under the Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (Application number: EPBC 2016/7847).
As you would be aware, the proposal is to establish a multi-day walk from the Thornton trailhead, traversing the Main Range National Park, and linking-up with Spicers Peak Lodge.
The proposed trail would follow a series of newly created and existing tracks in the National Park, with two camps for private commercial use to be constructed in the National Park.
Gainsdale also proposes to upgrade the trailhead car park and toilet facilities, and install two new public-access remote bush camps adjacent to the trail. These camps would be managed by Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service to provide for independent walkers and for camp management.
The documents can be accessed here,
The proposal is open for public consultation until 5:00pm Thursday the 19th of October.
