Project Background

After consultation with residents and stakeholders, Brisbane City Council has created a 20-year vision that reflects the community aspirations for the Mt Coot-tha precinct.

The vision is to embrace Mt Coot-tha as an iconic green landmark for the City of Brisbane and subsequently the Brisbane City Council announced planned upgrades in mid-2017 in line with the shared vision.

The upgrades will focus on improving accessibility and enhancing visitor experience including upgrades to the facilities.

Stage 3 is focused on the area at the back of Simpson Falls – Peter’s Pound and involves installing new shelters, picnic seating, barbeques, pathways, a bridge and improvements to the current carpark.
