Stage One Works Endorsed

Cassowary Coast Regional Council has endorsed the design concept for the Beautification of Banyan and Lions Park during the September 2023 Local Government Meeting

Based on the outcomes of the community consultation, Council endorsed the staged delivery of Option One Concept Design, which will create a welcoming space for families and visitors.

Stage One delivery will be improved landscaping, accessibility, and signage around the iconic Golden Gumboot. The staged approach will also see an interpretive node, parking upgrades, iconic entry signage, an avenue of trees, as well as significant tree feature lighting on the iconic raintrees.

This will create a vibrant entrance to Tully CBD and play a key role in the storytelling of our region.

Council will be working to deliver Stage One within the next nine months in preparation for the Tully 100 celebrations, a highly anticipated and exciting event.

Council sincerely thanks the Tully community for their contributions to the engagement over the past months.
