Those chasing waterfalls in the Rockhampton Region will find their path lit thanks to the recent addition of an all-abilities deck, pathways, and lighting at the iconic Kershaw Gardens waterfall.

Parks Councillor Cherie Rutherford said these additions really enhance the experience of the area.

“This waterfall is special to so many people in the Region,” said Cr Rutherford.

“It has been the backdrop for countless wedding photos and formal portraits, not to mention family picnics and Sunday strolls.

“This deck–along with the new all abilities path leading from the High Street carpark–makes it possible for more people in our community to access and enjoy the serenity of this area, and everyone visiting can now view the wetlands from out over the water.”

Divisional Councillor Donna Kirkland said that this is a great spot for people to pause.

“This waterfall was already one of those places that makes you slow down and take a breath,” said Cr Kirkland.

“This deck, however, offers visitors a new perspective, and really invites you to relax, contemplate and take in your surroundings.

“It’s a lovely addition to an already spectacular area.”
