12 APRIL - MAKE YOUR TAMBORINE MOUNTAIN VISIT EVEN MORE SCENIC
Council is reminding visitors to the region there are many ways to access the wonderful attractions of Tamborine Mountain, despite a much-publicised bridge closure due to flood damage.
"Many roads lead to Tamborine Mountain and only one bridge on one section of road in the Gold Coast hinterland has unfortunately been closed due to flood damage," Scenic Rim Mayor Greg Christensen said.
"What we are hearing, however, is that some people mistakenly believe the closure of John Muntz Bridge on Tamborine-Oxenford Rd has somehow isolated Tamborine Mountain.
"We want to bridge this knowledge gap and assure visitors that Tamborine Mountain and Scenic Rim are well and truly open for business and ready to welcome you with our unique brand of hospitality.
"You'll be doing yourself a disservice if you consider changing your travel plans."
Cr Christensen said a detour around the flood-damaged bridge crossing from Oxenford via Heathwood Dr and Reserve Rd was already in place, but there were several other easy routes to Tamborine Mountain from the Gold Coast, Logan and Brisbane.
"We're encouraging visitors to enjoy more of our region by taking an alternate scenic route to the Mountain, one which will only add a few minutes to a trip.
"When visiting our wonderful Scenic Rim region, it is as much about the journey through our spectacular landscape as it is about your destination."
