Launch of the Statewide Trails Strategy 2023-2033

At Sunday’s Hiking Expo Deputy Premier Hon. Susan Close launched the Statewide Trails Strategy. The Statewide Trails Strategy has been created to map the strategic priorities over a 10 year timeframe by maximising the potential of our existing trails network and identifying opportunities for new trail development or improvements.

A major focus of the strategy is to develop and promote trailbased activities that are accessible to many different groups for an inclusive experience for a wide range of trail users.
