Request for Proposal- Mt Coot-tha Zipline, Brisbane 

Brisbane City Council has formally released a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the construction, operation and maintenance of a zipline at Mt Coot-tha. Once completed, residents and visitors will be able to enjoy an adventure through the precinct’s pristine natural environment and a bird’s-eye view of Mt Coot-tha and the city beyond. 

Council will undertake the RFP in two stages. Stage one allows parties to submit their initial proposals for the zipline to Council via an online Supplier Portal. Stage two will involve shortlisted parties developing detailed designs.

A key principle of the Mt Coot-tha zipline is to have minimal impact on the environment. Council has undertaken appropriate ecological studies to ensure the alignment
of the zipline is guided by this principle. Council has identified an area of interest in Mt Coot-tha as the potential zipline zone. The location of the zipline will depend on site features and the final location will be determined in partnership with the successful operator.

All RFP documentation including a precinct map and environmental findings are available on Council’s online Supplier Portal.
