High Country Rail Trail - A Path to Bushfire Recovery

Council has been successful in securing a $160,000 grant for further development of the High Country Rail Trail.

The grant was applied for under the Federal Government’s National Bushfire Recovery Agency, under the Regional Tourism Bushfire Recovery (RTBR) Grant Program – Stream 2.

This new funding will support the development of a 'Masterplan' for the future of the High Country Rail Trail, design and installation of consistent signage en-route, and the implementation of a significant cycle tourism marketing campaign over three years.

Council will work alongside Parklands Albury Wodonga, The High Country Rail Trail Advisory Committee, and Tourism North East to deliver the project.
