TRC undertook a study of walking tracks to feed into the future development of a strategy for a walking track system centred on Namadgi National Park. The study considered a broad range of walking experiences within the park, and was used to help inform future priority, effort and expenditure.
The study covered a review of existing trails, with consideration of the operational strategy and walking track guidelines relevant to the area, and involved consultation with community stakeholder groups and the Parks and Conservation service. The study aimed to identify gaps in the current experiences available for walkers, including people with disabilities, and provide recommendations for developing new trails, upgrading existing tracks, and linking trails to create new circular walking routes – potentially with links to historic or cultural features. It also considered how the proposed trail network would complement other visitor infrastructure, and outline the estimated costs of developing and maintaining the tracks within the operational constraints.
