COMING SOON- THE SCENIC RIM TRAIL
Australia’s next great walk is a step closer.
Building on our popular Scenic Rim Trail 2-day and 4-day hikes, plans are underway for a 6-day experience that promises spectacular views, soothing rainforests and rich cultural and natural heritage. The proposed trail will traverse Main Range National Park, part of the unique Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area and include two new eco-camps.
We have been working with the Queensland and Australian Governments to bring this new adventure to life.
EPBC Act Referral
As part of the proposed walks approval process, the proposal was submitted to the Department of Environment and Energy for consideration of the proposed impacts that walk could potentially have under the Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Act (EPBC Act).
In February 2017 the Department confirmed that the proposal was regarded as a controlled action and would require assessment and approval under the EPBC Act. In accordance with the Acts provisions, the response to the Departments request for further information, additional documentation and field work has been completed and the full set of documentation supporting the projects EPBC Act referral can be accessed HERE.
