Murgon – Cherbourg Cultural Path

Client: Department of Housing and Public Works – QBuild

Year: 2019

Location: Murgon-Cherbourg, QLD

Team: John Philipp, James McDonnell



The Cherbourg Aboriginal Shire Council with support from the Queensland Government Department of Housing and Public Works, technical input from South Burnett Regional Council and funding from the National Indigenous Australians Agency has taken on the challenge to prepare a concept design for the proposed construction of a separated ‘cultural pathway’ to enable pedestrians, cyclists, prams, mobility scooters to safely commute from Cherbourg to Murgon beside Cherbourg Road.

To assist with design, Orion utilised our Aerial Surveying capabilities to produce a current high resolution orthophoto of the 6.5km corridor. Orion also undertook Control Survey and Ground Truthing to supplement the concept design with Airborne LiDAR data. Detail Surveys were also completed of critical locations along the route, providing accurate data of these locations to give confidence of accurate concept design.  Orion compiled all captured information to create a comprehensive dataset for the design team.
