Community breakfast to celebrate reopening

A free community breakfast will be held at Tom Beatson Outlook this Friday at 7.30am (NSW time), to celebrate the popular Tweed Heads park’s reopening following its upgrade late last year.

“While people have been enjoying renewed access to the outlook during the holiday period, we wanted to have a community celebration because of Razorback’s importance to so many people,” Council’s Director Community and Natural Resources, Tracey Stinson, said.

“Community consultation during the outlook’s closure showed how many people regularly visit Razorback for recreation, to show visitors to the area or for major milestones in their lives.

“A special breakfast seemed the best option for the celebration because the outlook is a popular destination for a lot of people on their morning walks.

“We’re also inviting people who have never been to Tom Beatson Outlook to come along and see why Razorback means so much to so many people,” she said.

“Importantly, Friday’s celebration will recognise and explain Razorback’s great significance to the local Aboriginal community, which knows the location as ‘Joongurrabah’.”

Joongurrabah is listed as a place of cultural significance in the Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Act.

Ms Stinson said Council was highly conscious of the lookout’s importance to many members of the community and found a safe and cost-effective option to reopen the walkway as soon as possible.
