Cape Edgecumbe Works Unveiled

The first stage of Cape Edgecumbe’s upgrades has finally been unveiled, by the Whitsunday Regional Council.

Over 1,100 metres of walking tracks along the trail have been improved, including drainage, track widening, signage, safety rails at lookouts and new steps.

These works have taken place across the 750 metre trail from Rose Bay to Murray Bay, Mother Beddock lookout, and over 350 metres of Murray Bay ascent to Rotary Lookout.

Engagement and Place Coordinator Jonathan Cutting is proud to unveil the completed works.

“The trails are now significantly safer and more accessible for users to enjoy this beautiful habitat and some of the best views of Bowen surrounds,” he explained.

“We thank the community for their patience and our contractor Dirtscapes for their hard work in difficult terrain and hot weather.”

The Cape Edgecumbe Trail upgrades were supported by the Commonwealth Governments Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.
