About the project

Council is creating more to see and do in a clean and green Brisbane, with more opportunities to enjoy Brisbane's beautiful climate and connect with family and friends in the places that make our city great.

Eildon Hill Reservoir sits at the summit of Eildon Hill and has extensive views of Brisbane and surrounding areas, including the Border Ranges, Cunninghams Gap, Taylor and D'Aguilar Range, and Moreton Bay.

The Eildon Hill stage two grant works project was a joint initiative of Brisbane City Council and the Queensland Government. These works have now completed the planned upgrades to Eildon Hill Reservoir.

These project works included:

  • the installation of a new walking trail and related signage
  • drainage works to facilitate the new walking trail
  • building a new rest area with a view over Moreton Bay
  • repairs to the stairs off Constitution Road to improve safety for users
  • resurfacing the existing roadway to ensure ongoing pedestrian safety
  • installing a new shelter and seating.

Following consultation with the community and key stakeholders, including Urban Utilities, the public access road to Eildon Hill remains closed to public vehicles. This was a collaborative decision with Urban Utilities to ensure the community can continue to enjoy the site while also ensuring the safety and security of this essential water storage facility.

Council thanks the community for their patience and understanding while the second stage of works was carried out.
