Albany Trail Town Forum

MTB trail in Albany

The Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries and the Great Southern Centre for Outdoor Recreation Excellence (GSCORE) are running a FREE community workshop with a keynote presentation from Chris Hughes who will be showcasing the best example of a Trail Town development in Australia – the Blue Derby Trails.

A Trail Town is “a population centre which has been assessed and accredited as a destination for its trails offering through the provision of high quality trails; outdoor experiences; trails related facilities/services; trail related businesses; and branding and signage” – WA Strategic Trails Blueprint 2017.

Trail Towns create jobs, grow regional economies and build communities. This has been demonstrated in numerous locations across the world and in some jurisdictions of Australia. However, whilst WA has extensive planning, business case and strategy development for establishing Trail Towns, there are no Trail Towns in this state!

The keynote presentation will be followed by two presentations that reflect on trail master planning in Western Australia, and a facilitated workshop that aims to identify the Great Southern’s unique trail offerings.

For those interested in learning more about best-practice trail design and construction, an optional Trail Building Workshop will be held in the afternoon, with a hands-on trail building session the next morning (Friday 1 June). Please note that places are limited for the trail building workshop and a registration fee of $55 (GST incl) applies for the theory workshop.

RSVP by 25 May. Register your attendance.
