That’s a wrap – You Yangs Flood Recovery complete

Tuesday 23 April, 2013

Victorians can explore a range of recreational options at the You Yangs Regional Park after Rangers celebrated the end of flood recovery works.

The $1.5 million You Yangs flood recovery was supported by local mountain bike clubs.

Exloring the range of activities on site is a great way to spend the day outdoors. From bush walking, bike riding, horse riding and rock climbing - anyone of any age should make a day of it – come visit the You Yangs. The park has a high national profile in the mountain bike community, with a loyal following of 260,000 riders visiting the park every year.

Flood recovery project repaired three roads, four management vehicle tracks, 18 mountain bike tracks and four walking tracks. Visitors to the You Yangs will enjoy improved car parking, landscaping, picnic and toilet facilities. There is also plenty of recovery work unseen by visitors with repairs to over 130 damaged culverts that will help the park resist future flood events.

Parks Victoria thanks the volunteers from You Yangs Mountain Bike Inc and Geelong Mountain Bike Club for their work in repairing and realigning tracks.
