World Class Trail Hub

Trail Innovation Hub


The Great Southern is a model of best practice in trail design, construction, maintenance and management


The goal of the Trail Innovation Hub is to share best practice information and provide training on sustainable trail design, construction and maintenance. We are also working closely with trail and land managers, businesses, and the university sector to develop new techniques to monitor trail usage.


  • Trail Building Network – with the support of Lotterywest and our regional partners, we have established a network of individuals and organisations involved in trail planning, construction and maintenance within the Great Southern. Contact us if you would like to become part of the network.
  • Trail Monitoring project – we are working with the Centre of Excellence in Natural Resource Management (CENRM) at the University of Western Australia; and the Innovation Centre at Curtin University to develop a digital application for ongoing trail monitoring.
