  • ​McGowan Government helping to develop a trails hub for cyclists to increase tourism in Nannup
  • State Government commits $148,000
  • The hub will strengthen the connection between forestry and active forest users

The McGowan Government is partnering with the Shire of Nannup to establish Nannup as a trails hub for cyclists.

 

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Forestry Chris Tallentire today announced at an event launching the trails project in Nannup that the McGowan Government has committed $15,000 from the Forests Products Commission (FPC) and $133,000 from Lotterywest.

 

The funding will go towards the development of a cycling masterplan, and the preparation of documents to sanction cycling trails in the Shire of Nannup.

 

The trails hub is set to increase tourism and stimulate the local economy as well as engage communities and strengthen the relationship between active forest users and forest management practices.

 

The FPC is committed to supporting tourism opportunities in regional areas connected to Western Australia's vibrant forestry industry to support jobs and regional economies.

 

Comments attributed to Forestry Minister Dave Kelly:

 

"The McGowan Government is extremely proud to be part of this project that will help drive tourism in Nannup supporting the local economy and jobs. 

 

"Forestry, alongside tourism and other industries, contribute to the economic diversity of regional communities and ensure they remain strong."

 

Comments attributed to Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Forestry Chris Tallentire MLA:

 

"As an avid cyclist myself, I'm particularly excited to see the development of a cycling masterplan for the area and can't wait to explore more of this beautiful region.

 

"Cycling and spending time in natural areas, like Western Australia's forests and plantations, is a great way to connect with others and improve health and wellbeing."
