State Budget includes two trail development projects

Yesterday’s State Budget included allocation to two walking trail projects.

Project 1: Multi-day walking trail on Kangaroo Island

Walking the south-west coast of Kangaroo Island, Jeremy Carter IMG_8667$2.25m was allocated towards the first 50% of the proposed multi-day walking trail in the south west of the island. The trail will feature camping areas and will be constructed in five sections over two and a half years. This follows past work in developing a Kangaroo Island strategic plan and trail feasibility studies.

Project 2: Realignment of Heysen Trail along the South Coast

Tunkalilla Beach with Tunk Head beyond, Jeremy Carter IMG 4533$1.1m was allocated for the realignment and further development of the Heysen Trail along the southern coast of the Fleurieu Peninsula at Tunkalilla Beach. The expenditure is set for the June quarter, 2015.

The realignment will continue the trail along the spectacular southern coastline, over Tunk Head and along the cliffs of Balqhidder Station, avoiding the inland one-day trek around the station.
