An exciting new addition to the summit of Mt Archer will see visiting families enjoy far better, more modern, facilities thanks to a grant from the Federal Coalition Government.
Federal Member for Capricornia, Michelle Landry said the $600,000 amenities block development would act as a key to unlock the tourism potential of one of the country’s great mountain parks.
“We have seen such growth in not only the facilities but the popularity of Mt Archer over recent years however the toilets at the summit are in need of renewal.
“I am pleased to be able to announce today that $600,000 will be granted to the Rockhampton Regional Council to build a new toilet and change facility, here at the top of Fraser Park.
“This development will greatly enhance the natural advantage of the Mountain and build on the success of previous rounds of funding from all three levels of Government on the mountain.
“The Nurrim Circuit has returned the interest back to the mountain and a new wave of locals and tourists are taking advantage of this magnificent natural asset.
“The ability for frail, infirm, or disabled people to access the Nurrim circuit has meant a world of difference to many CQ families and this new amenities block will be similarly accessible; making it perfect for wheelchair users, mothers with prams, and the elderly.” Ms Landry said.
“I am thrilled to be able to announce this funding today, just in time for Christmas, and I can’t wait for this project to be delivered so we can see even more people using the facilities and enjoying what Mt Archer has to offer.”
