Tourists will once again be able to explore the amazing walking tracks at Springbrook National Park.

Member for Mudgeeraba Ros Bates said that after the devastating weather events of January 2013, iconic walking tracks at Springbrook including Twin Falls circuit pedestrian footbridge were closed for repair.

“Today it’s great to announce $86,000 was dedicated to Springbrook and will see the Twin Falls circuit reopened to the public,” Ms Bates said.

“Springbrook is the green behind the gold and these iconic walking tracks are favourites for locals and tourists.”

“The Springbrook community has been doing it tough and I have been working tirelessly alongside community groups and locals to get this track reopened and secure Springbrook’s future as a premiere tourism destination.

“The swift reopening of these tracks will no doubt provide a huge boost for local businesses and tourism.

“Springbrook National Park is the bush in the Gold Coast’s backyard and the Queensland Government is committed to increasing tourism and access to this amazing place,” said Minister for National Parks Steve Dickson MP.

“That’s why we have recently upgraded the pedestrian footbridge on the Twin Falls circuit track at a cost of approximately $86,000.

“It’s all part of the Queensland Government’s strong plan to get Queenslanders to switch from screen time to green time and get fit and active while exploring our sensational National Parks.”
