Tamborine Mountain Gallery Walk Precinct
Tamborine Mountain Gallery Walk Precinct (the Precinct) is an important regional visitor destination located on Long Road on Tamborine Mountain, on a State controlled road.
It is a pedestrian shopping and hospitality precinct that services Tamborine Mountain locals and visitors with more than 70 speciality shops in one block.
Over the past 20 years there have been a number of projects that identified issues and opportunities to improve the Precinct.
Without external funding these projects haven’t been able to progress.
Council has now received funding from the Queensland Government’s Building Our Regions program to deliver a concept design and a business case, which will directly support future funding applications to all tiers of government.
Council has launched its 'Have Your Say' campaign to support the project and there are several opportunities to share your ideas for improving the Gallery Walk Precinct.
We are currently gathering up-to-date information from community, stakeholders and visitors to influence the design specifically for pedestrian and traffic accessibility, public amenities, and the streetscape.
If you would like to be kept up to date with the project, please email email@example.com quoting 'Tamborine Mountain Gallery Walk Precinct'.
Detailed project information is available in our Frequently Asked Questions, which we encourage you to read for further background. These will be updated throughout the project.
Survey, Listening Post, Facilitated Meetings
Before any concepts are designed, Council surveyed the community and asked these key questions of users of the Gallery Walk Precinct.
- What do you value about the area?
- How do you use it?
- What would you like to see changed and what do you think should stay the same?
Survey closed Sunday 5 September 2021.
There was also a Listening Post in Rhoda Rushbrook Park on Tamborine Mountain on Saturday 21 August for locals and visitors to the Gallery Walk Precinct to share their ideas.
Council also hosted facilitated stakeholder meetings with representatives from community groups, Gallery Walk businesses and landlords to help the project team evaluate the best options for the concept designs.
The concept designs will involve continued consultation with the Department of Transport and Main Roads because Gallery Walk Precinct is located on Tamborine Mountain’s Long Road, which is a State controlled road.
Feedback on concept designs
Concept designs will capture the community feedback and identify options for a broad scope of works and provide the general look and feel of what the Gallery Walk Precinct could offer. The concept designs will be available on this website page in October. They will also be available for viewing via an Open House and at two static displays on Long Road.
Council will provide a public feedback form and this will be shared with community members, businesses and visitors to seek feedback on the concept designs by asking these key questions.
- What do you think of the concept designs?
- Do you prefer one?
- What changes would you suggest to your favourite one to make it any better?
Final concept presented
Council will present the final preferred option in December and they will be available on this website page. They will also be available for viewing via an Open House and at two static displays on Long Road, Tamborine Mountain.
To ensure the final concept design provides good value for money, a business case will be prepared that will outline the construction, operation and maintenance costs over the determined life of the project and compare these to the tangible and intangible benefits the Gallery Walk Precinct can bring in terms of economic, social, environmental and cultural improvements.
This project is focused on the end goal of sourcing the funding needed for specific improvements and upgrades to Tamborine Mountain Gallery Walk Precinct.
Using the business case Council will seek grant funding from all tiers of government to progress to the detailed design and construction phase.
