WA’s Hiking Participation Grants Program offers up to $25,000 per eligible organisation to grow the amount of people getting outdoors and taking part in safe hiking, trail running and bushwalking. The program encourages creative and innovative ways
to get Western Australians of any age, cultural background, or ability to start or continue hiking.
The 10 projects set to receive grants in the latest round of funding include a community celebration of the Bibbulmun Track 25th Anniversary as well as family focused activities such as a scavenger hunt in the Wheatbelt to encourage young people
to start hiking.
All up, $187,810 is being distributed — through the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries — to help these hiking projects on the right path to reach their peak:
The program is open to local governments, community organisations and active recreation clubs and associations, and aligns with the WA Hiking Strategy 2020-2030.
