Multi-million dollar boost for Kosciuszko
A multi-million dollar funding boost for the Kosciuszko National Park was announced this week by Deputy Premier, Minister for Regional NSW and Member for Monaro John Barilaro and Minister for the Environment Gabrielle Upton.
Mr Barilaro said the $27 million in funding, secured through the NSW Government’s Regional Growth Environment and Tourism Fund, will be spent developing walking and biking trails in the National Park which will transform Summer tourism in the region.
“The development of these hiking and biking trails will ensure the region is vibrant and busy all year-round,” Mr Barilaro said.
The funding will go towards two projects, with $17 million for the Kosciuszko Snowies Iconic Walk and a further $9.8 million to extend the Thredbo Valley Track, which will be constructed using International Mountain Bike Association Guidelines.
