About the project

Council is committed to keeping Brisbane clean and green, making our city liveable and sustainable for future generations.

The Stephens Mountain Reserve project aims to balance protection and conservation of the natural environment of the reserve, while improving recreation opportunities and accessibility for the community.

Stephens Mountain Reserve has been classified as a conservation zone, with the future intent being to protect its natural significance, while making it accessible for the community to enjoy.

Community consultation outcomes

In November 2019, the project team undertook community consultation on the draft concept plan for the Stephens Mountain Reserve project, involving multiple information kiosks and an online survey.

The community feedback identified the four most supported features of the draft concept plan were informal walking tracks, lookout, weed management and informal shared paths. In addition, the community indicated they wanted a focus on the protection and conservation of native vegetation and wildlife.

The final concept plan was developed using community feedback and includes:

  • local access walking track
  • lookout/viewing deck
  • weed management
  • shared paths
  • improved entry and exit points.

Council will continue to investigate a proposed entry point from Peach Street.
