Brisbane City Council have recently completed the latest stage of upgrades at Simpson Falls day use area, part of the Mt. Coot-tha Forest. A Brisbane icon, this 15 minute drive west of the CBD forms a backdrop for the city and is the area’s largest natural area. Installed in and around the forest are recycled plastic bollards from Replas. Since the beginning of the project, more than 2,000 bollards have been installed across several of the day use areas on Mt. Coot-tha. Named after the official bird emblem of Queensland, the Brolga Bollard is tall and slender with an elegant profile. The unique double wall construction offers more rigidity which adds to the strength of the installation. The hollow centre makes them cheaper to transport, light weight and easier to install. The durable, long lasting Brolga Bollards are a great addition for Brisbane City Council as they have saved more than 24 tonnes of recycled plastic from landfill.

Mt Coot-tha Forest offers a variety of walking tracks (for pedestrian use only), mountain bike trails (suitable for off-road cycling only) and some horse riding trails. Visitors to the reserve have access to picnic facilities, barbecues and toilets throughout the forest. Approximately 370 wildlife species and 450 native plant species live in Mt Coot-tha Forest, including a number of rare and threatened species.”
