Advocating for a Kakadu of the South Walking Trail in the South East Coastal Lakes proposal

The South East Coastal Lakes are made up of six lakes or bodies of seasonal water. Walking SA has responded to a Department for Environment and Water (DEW) proposal for options as to how the lakes should be managed.

Walking SA insists that the South East Coastal Lakes environment should be managed in a sustainable way for the respectful use and shared enjoyment of multiple user groups. Primacy should be given to low environmental and cultural impact uses. There should be a focus, not only on enhanced investment in walking trails around each of the major water assets but the strategic investment, in an iconic whole of South East Coastal Lakes walking trail, a Kakadu of the South walking trail. With walking affording a 13:1 return on investment there would be no better outlay.
