This master plan outlines draft visitor infrastructure improvements to increase capacity and enhance visitor access and safety at Minyon Falls lookout and nearby day use area.

Following the public exhibition of this master plan in late 2019, the day use area and car parks have been redesigned resulting in positive conservation outcomes for the site.

The Review of Environmental Factors has also been addended to reflect changes to the car park layout. No additional threatened plants were located, nor any additional hollow bearing trees that would be impacted. The net result of the redesigned carpark was a reduction in the number of trees requiring removal from 19 down to 5 or less.

See how the revised site plans compare to the draft master plan drawings in the video below (lookout design is indicative only).
