The glamping site on the Noosa River near canoe camp 3. The site will contain six glamping tent structures, communal eating and cooking areas, water tanks, solar panels, holding tanks for sewage, back-up diesel generator and a fuel storage bund, A public walking trail will have to be replaced with a road for heavy service vehicles, including a bridge over the creek that drains the fens at left. The entire site was burnt by wildfire in the summer of 2019/20. This site is only one of five sites proposed to be built inside the national park.

The window is closing on the chance to let the Department of Environment and Science know how you feel about the proposed Cooloola Great Walk Ecotourism Project.
Many questions were left unanswered by the so-called community consultation held in the area in June 2021.
The biggest question in my mind is: why sell off the best bits of our national parks to private tourism operators? Can’t we do eco-tourism with luxury developments on private land near parks, leaving the parks for all to enjoy, and for conservation of the natural capital on which all our tourism dollars depend?
