Great things happening on East Gippsland Rail Trail

Volunteer committee members of East Gippsland Rail Trail Committee of Management have been busy over the past 18 months securing funding for a range of projects on the trail.

Two projects of interest to Orbost and district residents will be the design and installation of new signage for the length of the trail (Bairnsdale to Orbost), funded through Regional Development Victoria’s Community Capacity Building Program, together with funding from East Gippsland Shire Council, and the recently constructed shelter at Simpsons Creek, funded through East Gippsland Shire Council’s Drought Relief Community Facilities Infrastructure Fund.

The next project on the committee’s list is upgrades to the Nowa Nowa to Orbost section of the trail for which funding opportunities are currently being pursued.
