Mt Cotton Guesthouse Retreat was recently awarded a $110,000 federal grant towards the construction of 3 new eco cabins on its own 20 hectare private nature refuge.
The TQUAL grant program supports business to provide high-quality services to tourists travelling in Australia. The 2012 program recently announced financial support to 77 tourism projects across Australia. Mt Cotton Guesthouse Retreat is the only successful project in the Redland/Brisbane area in this round.
Mt Cotton Luxury Eco Cabins will be the closest ECO Certified accommodation to a capital city where visitors can see koalas, wallabies and endangered birds in the wild and the closest eco cabins to Brisbane CBD and International Airport .
The 3 luxury cabins are the first stage of an 8 cabin development, complementing the existing multi-award winning B&B.
Owner Sue Panuccio was thrilled to receive the new. ‘After 2 previous attempts it was so tempting to let it pass as the process is very rigorous and the grants are hotly contested. Luckily we decided to give it one last shot.’ Sue expects the cabins to be ready for guests by early 2013.
