Online consultation open for Finch Hatton Trailhead master plan
Published: 18 Mar 2021
A trailhead is a place where you start and finish your mountain bike adventures which contains facilities that support riders.
Council has developed three proposed master plan concepts for the primary trailhead to be located within the Finch Hatton township – they are now online and open for public comment.
The concepts were developed in consultation with valuable input from internationally recognised trail experts, World Trail, as well as key stakeholders involved in the Pioneer Valley Mountain Bike Trails project.
The identified location for the trailhead is the old Cattle Creek Sugar Mill site as it provides a strong town linkage utilising existing mango trees as a boulevard.
Proposed facilities include a revamped Cattle Creek Mill administration building, platypus-shaped pump track, car park, bike rack, toilets, trail signage and event hosting amenities.
Attractions such as the Kungurri train turntable have also been incorporated in some of the concepts.
Head to connectingmackay.com.au to view the proposed concepts along with the site constraints to gain a deeper understanding of what is being proposed for the area.
Both Eungella and Finch Hatton will be trail towns and will act as key service hubs for the Pioneer Valley Mountain Bike Trails.
Feedback on the Finch Hatton Trailhead master plan closes midnight, April 18.
