Mt Coot-tha Zipline

Brisbane

Brisbane's controversial new zipline at Mt. Coot-tha has been approved by the Qld State Government, bringing it one step closer to fruition.

With public submissions closing on Friday the 14th, the final decision on whether the zipline gets the go ahead will now be in the hands of Brisbane City Council.

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk says that some 200 trees will be removed for the project but for each tree removed, 8 more will be planted in the Mt Coot-tha forest surrounds.

Mt Coot-tha Zipline

The Mt Coot-tha Zipline, which is expected to attract some 350,000 visitors per year, will feature 2 courses - a 1.1km scenic zipline and a 1.2km canopy zipline.

Both courses will commence at The Summit and end at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens at the base of Mt Coot-tha. In addition there'll be a 'skywalk'.

Need to know - Submissions to BCC end on Dec 14th at COB.
