Mount Louisa Open Space Masterplan


In March this year, Townsville City Council invited residents and the broader community to share their thoughts about the proposed Mount Louisa Open Space Masterplan.

Since the close of the engagement period in May 2019, Council has made the following key changes to the proposed Masterplan as a result of the valuable feedback provided by our community:

  • Proposed trail heads and access points have now been relocated away from existing residential streets
  • Proposed car parking locations (such as within Greenview and Crestbrook) have been removed and will be relocated to fringe areas to limit the increase in vehicle traffic through residential streets
  • The proposed mountain bike trail has been removed from Stage 1 and the focus will remain on walking tracks that complement the natural environment
  • Length of road to summit reduced to single access only from Cosgrove.

Council places high value on community feedback and the response from the community regarding Mount Louisa has directly assisted in the revision of our plans.

Council will commence detailed design works for Stage 1 in late October.

Council will continue to engage with the community about the future plans for Mount Louisa – to ensure it is a place designed for people, by the people who will use it.
