Tracking in the right direction for Agnes Water
GLADSTONE Regional Council has supported the project to construct a new bush walking trail south of Agnes Water.
The 10 kilometre loop Red Rock Nature Trail with interpretative signage will incorporate sections of Council's controlled coastal esplanade at Red Rock Headland.
Environment portfolio spokesperson Cr Col Chapman said the nature trail would provide a low impact, nature-based recreational activity aimed at drawing visitors to the area and raising environmental awareness.
"Council has allocated $5000 to contract Bush Heritage Australia to undertake repair work on Council's existing walking trail infrastructure as part of the development of the new nature trail loop," Councillor Chapman said.
"The repair work and development will be carried out in compliance with the relevant environmental acts and standards."
The new trail will link to the existing Paperbark Trail and Springs Beach access track, and is expected to be completed in early 2016.
