Bombala cycle trail gets rolling

Snowy Monaro Regional Council has officially opened the Bombala Precinct Cycle Trail.

Mayor, Narelle Davis and Councillor Bob Stewart joined Member for Eden-Monaro and Minister for Regional Development, Local Government and Territories, Kristy McBain to mark the occasion yesterday.

The 2021 Boco Rock Community Enhancement Fund Committee awarded $53,859 to Monaro Rail Trail Inc for the development of the Bombala Precinct Cycle Trail, a subsection of the future Monaro Rail Trail.

The trail leads cyclists and walkers around Bombala to view local attractions and points of interest, including the river, historic sites, and the lookout – thanks to the installation of trail markers and new wayfinding signs.

The town map at the Bombala River has received an upgrade, with a new sign also to be erected at the Bombala Visitor Centre. These new signs detail the trails on offer in the Bombala precinct.

Precinct Cycle Trails are ribs off the future potential Monaro Rail Trail spine designed to showcase local attractions, with the Bombala Precinct Cycle Trail serving as an added attraction to the southern trailhead.

The project has created a safe all-ability bike and walking path around Bombala which both serves the growing tourist market, and provides a safe and convenient means for locals to move around and within the town.
