Visitors to get better tracks at Creswick Regional Park
Friday 5 April, 2013
Mountain bikers and walkers will soon enjoy upgraded sections of the Goldfields Track in the Creswick Regional Park.
The project on the popular Goldfields Track will improve sections of the track so that it can better cater for mountain bike riding. The project will commence on 1 April and take six weeks to complete.
The Goldfields Track is a 210km shared use trail for mountain bike riders and walkers between Ballarat (Buninyong) and Bendigo. The track links historic goldfields villages, forests, hills and lakes across the Great Dividing Range.
The $65,000 project is part of the Victorian Coalition Government Flood Recovery project.
“The Goldfields Track is important to the Creswick community as it provides a way for locals and visitors to explore the history of the area and supports the local tourism industry. Its rich indigenous and European heritage contributes to the appeal of this place and I invite everyone to experience this.”
Peter Skilbeck of Goldfields Tourism was delighted by the announcement.
“It is fantastic news which supports our vision for the Goldfields Track to be a key visitor attraction in the Central Victorian Goldfields supporting regional tourism,” Mr Skilbeck said.
