The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) is assessing the value, benefits and options for a coastal walking and/or cycling trail between Fairhaven and Skenes Creek, in Victoria’s Great Ocean Road region.
The Great Ocean Road is one of Australia’s most popular tourist destinations. It attracts millions of visitors each year, supporting local communities and the economy.
This study will focus on the 60 kilometres of coastline between Fairhaven and Skenes Creek.
The Fairhaven to Skenes Creek Coastal Trail Study will:
- consider potential opportunities and challenges associated with trail development
- identify a feasible route and develop concept designs
- assess social, economic and environmental benefits of a trail
- estimate construction costs.
It will investigate how new sections of trail could connect with existing and already planned trails to provide a network of coastal walks from Torquay to Apollo Bay.
We are asking for community feedback to inform the study through two phases of community consultation in June and July 2019.
