The Regional Trails Master Plan (RTMP) identifies a coherent and clearly outlined program of trail infrastructure development across the Great Southern region over a ten-year period (2019-2029). The Master Plan focuses on a range of trail experiences suited to different user groups, including user needs for trail-related products and services, across the Great Southern.
The RTMP focuses on active leisure trails which involve an outdoor recreation element. This includes terrestrial trails (walking/hiking, trail running, cycling, mountain biking, and adventure bike riding) as well as aquatic trails (paddling a canoe, kayak, or stand-up paddleboard, and snorkelling/diving). It includes a drive trail which link together a series of “active nodes”, as well as heritage and cultural trails.
