This alert applies to the following park:
- Cooloola Recreation Area, Great Sandy National ParkSunshine Coast
Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) has installed a new portable toilet waste facility and introduced mandatory portable toilet requirements at Teewah Beach to address human waste being inappropriately disposed in the area’s natural environment.
All campers staying within the Teewah Beach camping zones 1 to 7 must bring and use a portable toilet for the duration of their stay. A minimum of one portable toilet per camping permit holder is required.
Portable toilets must have a sealed waste holding tank and must be transportable and suitable for emptying into a portable toilet waste disposal facility. Bag and open bucket style toilets are not permitted.
Purpose-built portable toilet waste disposal facilities are available for use by campers at the following locations:
- Second cutting, Noosa North Shore.
- Freshwater day-use area, (beach camper service bay).
- Clarkson Drive, Rainbow Beach.
The new waste disposal facility on the Noosa North Shore and the mandatory use of portable toilets by campers will assist with reducing pollution and improving everyone’s experience when visiting the Cooloola Recreation Area.
Rangers will be on patrol to monitor compliance and educate campers about the benefits of using portable toilets.
QPWS thanks you for your support and cooperation with this management change.
