Living in Elliot Springs
Information provided below is correct as at November 2019.
Development to Date
Elliot Springs has been a hive of activity with construction of 130 new residential blocks now complete. Works on the two sewer pump stations and 13km main to Cleveland Bay waste water treatment plant continue to progress and are on target for completion in April 2020. As part of this scope of work, a culvert is being constructed into our next address, Whites Creek which is due for release in early 2020.
Hiking the 2.1km Bindal Ridge trails is a popular activity for locals who can often be seen making the trek early morning or late afternoon for the stunning views across Elliot Springs and beyond. The next phase of our trail network through Bindal Ridge has commenced construction with the Turtle Trail and Lookout connection now underway. Work on this is due for completion in early 2020. Both trails will add approximately 5.2km of trails to the network.
