Regional Trails Master Plan

Hiking in the Stirling Ranges

Great Southern Centre for Outdoor Recreation Excellence (GSCORE) has begun collating a wide range of feedback from members of the public and stakeholder groups commenting on the draft Great Southern Regional Trails Master Plan. The feedback will be reviewed by the Project Management Executive Group and key land managers.

This brings to a close an important stage in enabling GSCORE to develop the Great Southern Regional Trails Master Plan.

“By 2030, the Great Southern Region will provide a diverse range of quality trail experiences that showcase the region’s unique landscapes, biodiversity, geology, Aboriginal culture and settler heritage,” says GSCORE Executive Director Dr Lenore Lyons.

The Great Southern Regional Trails Master Plan provides a coherent program of trail infrastructure development across the entire region over a 10-year period (2020-2029). It has been developed to guide decisions about investment in, and management of trails, and provides a vision for a future Great Southern trail network.

This project is funded by Building Better Regions Fund, and Lotterywest, with matching funding support from all eleven local governments in the Great Southern region, as well as the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries (DLGSC), the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions (DBCA), and the Great Southern Development Commission (GSDC).
