Grant for re-surfacing the Riesling Trail

Gary Sims and Mark Hill inspect a section of the Riesling Trail that has worn down to the base rock. A grant from the Office of Recreation and Sport will fund the resurfacing of the trail, which has gradually eroded over its 20 years by rain, wind and thousands of feet and bicycle tyres.

The ever-popular Riesling Trail will soon receive a $189,000 ‘face lift’, funded by a state government Community Recreation and Sport Facilities Program grant. click here to read the whole article published in the Northern Argus, written by Keira James.
