The project will deliver a Master Plan for the Noosa Trail Network – a network of eight hinterland trails passing through diverse areas within the Noosa Biosphere Reserve including national park, state forest, private property, council parks and road reserves.
The project aims to eliminate and prevent misuse of this important environmental asset whilst supporting and managing the sustainable use of the network and its surrounding areas.
A key outcome of the plan will be the delivery of a detailed action and implementation plan that addresses trail enhancement, case studies, funding models/costs, infrastructure requirements, economics and sustainable jobs, erosions, revegetation and weeds, water, risk management plan, marking and education information.
The project will be led by Noosa Tourism who have partnered with Noosa and District Landcare and the Noosa Council’s Economic Development Department.
Stakeholder engagement has already commenced with bike clubs, commercial operators, QPWS, community groups and Noosa Council.
