Mt Coolum National Park

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Graeme Chalmers
1/56 Jarnahill Drive

Total Signatures - 616

Sponsoring Member: Fiona Simpson MP

Posting Date: 15/10/2015

Tabled Date: 15/10/2015

Responded By: Hon Dr Steven Miles MP on 11/11/2015

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

The petition of residents of the State of Queensland draws to the attention of the House the lack of public toilet facilities in the vicinity of Mt Coolum National Park. Following an upgrade of the summit track in 2012, there has been a significant increase in the number of visitors to over 10,000 per month (in 2014). Visitors are experiencing lack of parking, especially during weekends, and lack of public amenities, which is negatively impacting on local residents and the environment.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to ask the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service to provide public toilet facilities and to work with the Sunshine Coast Council to find better parking solutions for visitors to the popular Mt Coolum National Park.
