LETTER | Grant to aid Wimmera River Discovery Trail

SIR, – I would like to acknowledge the recent grant funding by the Commonwealth towards the Wimmera River Discovery Trail.
This will make the first stages of the trail a reality and provide fresh economic and tourism opportunities for Hindmarsh Shire and the Wimmera.
The support of The Weekly Advertiser in promoting this initiative is much appreciated. I hope the trail will continue to garner the support of government and the wider community.
The project is staged and its many benefits will only be realised with completion of the full vision, which includes a pedestrian bridge across the river in Dimboola and an extension of the trail to Lake Albacutya.
None of this will be possible without ongoing federal and state government funding.
Hopefully other sources of funding might also be forthcoming, such as the local wind farms, to support council in completion of this project.
In any event, I hope that in the not-too-distant future interested people will be able to traverse the environs of the Heritage Wimmera River throughout the entirety of its passage through unique Hindmarsh Shire.
Cr Tony Schneider
Hindmarsh Shire Council
