Consultation has concluded, thank you for your time.

Townsville City Council has received Australian Government funding under the Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF) Infrastructure Projects Stream round 3.

As part of this funding, Council will construct a new staircase and walking track from the existing carpark located at the western end of Walker Street and up through to the Jones Street reservoir.

This Australian Government BBRF project will help Townsville unlock its tourism potential and help stimulate local economies by investing in the tourism sector.

Council welcomes you to participate and have your say on this project. Your feedback will contribute to shaping this site and guide Council on decision making and planning for the future.

As part of this project, Council plans to:

  • upgrade the existing walking track from the Jones Street reservoir to the Goat Track
  • upgrade the junction of the Maidenhare and Goat Tracks with new signage and seating
  • construct an elevated stair and ramp structure up the rock face to the rear of YWAM
  • construct a new carpark in the Walker Street road reserve
  • construct a new concrete path to connect to the existing Walker Street steps.

Council invites visitors and surrounding residents of the site to have your say on the new staircase proposal.
