Pic­nic Point

The Chronicle - - OPINION -

IN RE­GARDS to a let­ter to the editor, a news item last week on the view­ing plat­forms at Pic­nic Point, plus the in­ter­est in es­tab­lish­ing a world-class quarry gar­den.

A lot of towns­folk get the two quar­ries mixed up.

The one we see from the high­way at Har­lax­ton is still in con­tin­ual use, whereas the old Bridge St quarry hasn’t been used for years.

The idea of the quarry gar­dens is ex­cel­lent, ex­cept for the cost, so it would be doubt­ful that it would ever be a pay­ing propo­si­tion.

But yes, a great tourist at­trac­tion. So we’ll see what hap­pens there in the fu­ture.

Pic­nic Point, the cur­rent pro­posal is (we’d as­sume) not re­ally costly and the view will be won­der­ful. But why not put it re­ally on the map with a chair­lift across to Ta­ble Top?

This would re­ally get used and would likely be a vi­able propo­si­tion, so a com­mer­cial op­er­a­tor might well be in­ter­ested in build­ing and op­er­at­ing it.

Here’s to see if there are any tak­ers or other thoughts. — RAY HARCH, Toowoomba
