20 Years of Modern Recreation Trails in WA

Postby Aushiker » Tue 06 Jan, 2015 4:19 pm

At the 2014 State Trails and Outdoors Conference in October, the Department of Sport and Recreation launched a new book. It is an interesting read for anyone associated with the development or use of trails - and is now available online. Whilst acknowledging the importance of the 60,000 years of Aboriginal trails heritage, the focus of the document is on the modern trails history of Western Australia …

The book is available for download as a PDF. More details at TrailTalk

They should change the title to "20 yrs of modern reacreation trails in SOUTH Western Australia" because there isn't a word on the Northern half of WA... Hell, there's not a word on anything North of Perth for crying out lout. I wouldn't mind if it it meant a wild unspoilt gigantic area North of Perth, but it doesn't. Some parts are heavily mined and with parks poorly maintained (Karijini, Millstream), others would attract much more visitors with easier access and better information (Cape Range, François Péron), and some are desperately in the need for new walking tracks (Kennedy Range). I really hate when they assume people only care about bushwalking South of Perth, and everything else is ignored. There's so much potential in the Pilbara and the Kimberley.
