Intro

Everyday, Western Australians enjoy our State’s unique outdoor lifestyle — whether walking, riding, exploring, exercising, paddling, or engaging in a range of other outdoor and adventure activities.

The annual Wheatbelt Trails Forum will showcase another of the Wheatbelt’s trails, providing participants with an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors while receiving updates on trails and outdoor recreation, focusing on the professional development and education opportunities available, how these opportunities can bring economic activity to the region and foster connected communities.

The event will include:

  • Bushwalk: Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions will guide a bushwalk along part of the Woylie Walk Trail, leaving from Old Mill Dam. This is a Green Class 3 walk trail.

Along with the following updates:

  • State-wide Trails: Steve Bennett (DLGSC) will provide an update of Trails and Outdoor Recreation from a State perspective including insights into what to expect from the WA Strategic Trails Blueprint and Mountain Bike Strategies, due to be launched later in the year. 
  • Outdoors Great Southern: enhancing professionalism and skills in the outdoor recreation sector, learn more about the Trails Training Package and other projects the Outdoors Great Southern are working on.
  • Bibbulmun Track Foundation: learn more about the guide and maintenance training available through the foundation and how upskilling volunteers can benefit your trails and communities.  
  • West Arthur CRC: a successful recipient of a WA Hiking Participation Grant, hear what West Arthur CRC achieved and how the local community has benefited. 
  • Trails WA: update on the Trails WA new and improved website and the benefits of promoting local trails through the site.
