    Babinda_boulders

    Babinda Boulders is located within the foothills of the Bellenden Ker Range. It has been a popular visitor destination for many years and caters for a range of outdoor pursuits including picnics, bush-walking, swimming, commercial tourism, sightseeing and social events. 

    In response to recent issues relating predominantly to car parking and water access and in order to create a strategic vision for the site, a draft Master Plan has been developed to guide future management and development of Babinda Boulders.

    Council is now seeking community feedback on the Draft Babinda Boulders Master Plan. Consultation closes on Friday October 10.

  • Draft Lake Morris Recreation Management Plan

    Lakemorris2

    Lake Morris (or Copperlode Dam), the major water supply for Cairns, contains a recreation area with associated user facilities. 

    Recent public interest in expanded recreational uses at the site has prompted Council to prepare a draft Recreation Management Plan.

    The draft plan identifies new recreation opportunities which do not adversely impact the water supply and environmental/biodiversity values of the site. It also recommends a framework to manage recreation activities within the constraints of existing infrastructure. It further recommends improved investment and activation through community and commercial partnerships.
