MOUNT Archer is no longer the natural beauty it was before TC Marcia tore through the region a month ago.

With an extensive amount of debris, fallen tries and unsteady boulders, Chair of Local Disaster Management Group and Infrastructure Committee councillor Tony Williams said the clean-up would be a multi-million dollar effort.

"It's been a massive effort to clear the debris on Mount Archer and our focus now is to fix the structural damage caused to Pilbeam Drive," Cr Williams said.

"It's going to require a considerable amount of time and work to get a comprehensive assessment of the situation before we can move forward with stabilisation works."

Cr Williams estimated it could take up to two years to get Mt Archer back to its original state.
