The project will feature an upper and lower lookout providing panoramic views of Kalgulup Regional Park and the wider City of Bunbury.
A new 670 metre wheelchair accessible pathway will lead to the lower lookout through the surrounding Tuart Forest. The lower lookout will be 45 metres high while the upper lookout will be 67 metres in height, connected by 153 steps. Interpretive signage will share the area's rich history with visitors.
Local company Picton Civil Pty Ltd has been chosen to construct the project, creating about 80 jobs. 80% of the contract value will be spent in the region.
The recently expanded parking area and playground developed by the City of Bunbury along Ocean Drive will complement the Maidens Reserve development.
The scenic lookout and trail are expected to be complete mid next year. The design was informed by the City of Bunbury's Co-Design Access Panel. The project is managed by the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions.
