Access for people with a disability

From the bush to the beach, Queensland’s national parks and State forests are wonderful places to visit – places where you can get away from it all and experience our state’s beautiful natural environment.  Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service is improving access to our parks and forests for people with a disability.  This brochure provides information on different types of access currently available around Queensland.

Access for people with a disability – helping everyone enjoy Queensland’s Parks and Forests, on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.

Apart from these parks and forests, there are around 30 more locations that offer limited access to park facilities such as picnic areas and toilets.  Information on other parks is available on our website at Click for EPA website .

Amamoor State Forest and Forest Reserve

The Platypus Walk, starting at the far end of the Amama day use area at Amamoor State Forest and Forest Reserve, west of Gympie, is wheelchair-accessible.  The track follows Amamoor Creek to a small viewing platform where you can watch for platypus.

Beerburrum State Forest and Forest Reserve

In the Sunshine Coast lowlands, the Melaleuca walk and Mooloolah River circuit through rainforest and wet Sclerophyll forest along the Mooloolah River at Jowarra are wheelchair-accessible.

Notes:  Before you visit:  Check the www.epa.qld.gov.au website to find out as much as possible about our national parks and forests before you visit.

Additional information about all parks and forests listed in this brochure is provided on the website and some parks and forests have information sheets that can be downloaded.

Leave no trace:  National parks and state forests protect Queensland’s wonderful natural diversity and scenery.  Please help keep these places special by the following our visitor guidelines:

  • Protect the wildlife.  Remember, plants and animals are protected.  Keep to tracks and try not to trample plants.
  • Be careful with fire.  Use fireplaces where provided rather than open fire.  Make sure that all fires are out before you leave.
  • Use a fuel stove.  When cooking, use a fuel stove where possible and don’t collect firewood.  Dead wood provides habitat for many native animals.
  • Don’t leave rubbish.  Take your rubbish when you leave or use bins where they are provided.  Do not bury your rubbish.
  • Be considerate.  People visit parks and forests to enjoy the natural environment.  Noisy radios and generators can detract from the experience.
  • Do not take pets.  With the exception of guide dogs, all domestic animals must remain at home.  Cats and dogs disturb native wildlife and can annoy other visitors.
  • Protect creeks and lakes.  Do not use soap, toothpaste or detergent in freshwater lakes and creeks or the ocean – they pollute the water.
  • Respect indigenous culture.  Rock art and other cultural sites in parks and forests represent thousands of years of living culture for Australia’s indigenous people.  These sites are irreplaceable and easily damaged.  Look at and enjoy them, but do not touch or damage these sites.

Network Video Landsborough

Were you aware that people in Maleny and surrounding districts can return their hired videos from Network Video in Landsborough – in Maleny?   This service is proving popular.

Network Video Landsborough

Network Video Landsborough – the Home Entertainment Experts, is at 40 Cribb Street, Landsborough – Telephone 07 5494 8711.

The owner was telling me that he has many customers from Maleny – so many that he has arranged for a drop-off chute at the Organic Shop, on the corner of Maple & Myrtle Streets.  The box is emptied daily – thereby saving customers the trip down the hill just to return the videos.

Hire of video’s is through a ‘Pay It Forward Card’ which costs $35 for 10 rentals (down from $5.95 each) – a saving of $24.50.  Also Click here to check out their Facebook page

 

 

 

Maleny Christmas Carnival – What a Party!

Maleny Christmas Carnival – What a Party!  If you didn’t make the Maleny Christmas Carnival in the main street of Maleny last night – you missed one heck of a community party.  Coming down the hill and seeing a business absolutely covered in Christmas lights – to the man in the dark shouting safety messages to everyone coming past – to all of the community groups and businesses that opened for the evening – re-arranging menus, building street stalls for food, gifts etc, handing out free Christmas cake, organising an army of helpers to offer the locals all manner of ‘stuff’.   How impressive was that twirling ride in the middle of our sloping street!  The music, the lights, the arts &  crafts – oh I know I have missed so many in this missive.  From my own point of view, I was so impressed by the friendliness of all of the people when I accosted them to help the Maleny Visitor Information Centre by adding a review into Google – to enhance our Google standing – I thank you all.  However my most thanks have to go to Spencer & Karen Shaw and their team(s) of helpers who organised everything – to go from our usual main street, covered in vehicles as normal – to such a party land was extraordinary and all put up – run – and pulled down all in 4 to 5 hours.  You guys deserve a medal.  I love this community – but last night made me just so proud to be part of it.
