Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve

MCSR Building Renewal Project

Sunshine Coast Regional Council Project News 1

Project summary

The iconic Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve is a much-loved place.

It is so loved by all, that it needs help in strengthening its role as a centre for conservation and learning, while catering for those who come to experience one of the few rainforest remnants on the Blackall Range and mesmerising views of the Glass House Mountains landscape.

The kiosk and visitors’ centre need upgrades, but that upgrade must not detract from or damage in any way the essence of this scenic wonder.

Sunshine Coast Council seeks to improve the built facilities at the reserve, through a more interactive interpretive centre and meeting place, improved food and beverage catering abilities, and viewing areas that capture the Glass House Mountains landscape.

Council is aware of the sensitivities around these proposals, and seeks to achieve these goals in a design sympathetic to the existing character, charm and uniqueness of the reserve, and its place in the hearts of its volunteer force, its Friends, and Blackall Range dwellers in general.

Any new structures will not extend beyond the current built footprint, thereby honouring the Deed of Trust under which the Reserve was gifted.
