If you’re looking for new places to explore these school holidays, why not plan a day trip to Beerwah.
Right in the heart of town, you’ll find the popular Turner Park, with a playground that will keep kids of all ages entertained while you enjoy refreshments from many options along Simpson Street or from other local cafes. You could also pack a picnic and have lunch in one of the park’s barbecues shelters.
Over the past couple of years Turner Park has undergone a wonderful transformation. There’s a new entry arbour and seating, refreshed landscaping, formalised pathways and lighting. We also relocated the cenotaph a few years ago and the plantings in the new remembrance garden have matured nicely.
And of course, the incredible new destination playground that includes a multi-level play tower, spiral slide, traditional slide, toddler play areas, an all-abilities carousel and a zip line.
Also in Beerwah, the Queensland Government’s recent announcement of construction moving ahead on the $1.65 million Beerwah Community Meeting Place was welcome news for the Glass House township. The local community had been calling for extra meeting space for many years, so it will be fantastic to see this project underway later this year as a part of the Unite and Recover Community Stimulus Package.
The new space will feature multi-purpose meeting rooms, an outdoor meeting room, kitchenette and an integrated link with our Beerwah Library, which was also revitalised in 2018.
All of these fabulous town centre developments and community facilities are outcomes from the Beerwah Public Domain Masterplan, and combine to enhance the liveability of Beerwah – which is the major activity centre of the Glasshouse Country townships, all of which are welcoming many new residents and visitors.
