THE North East is set to become one of the world’s top destinations for trail cycle tourism, thanks to a $12 million funding boost from the State Government.
Premier Daniel Andrews joined Minister for Regional Development Jaala Pulford and Jaclyn Symes (MLC, Northern Victoria) in Yackandandah yesterday to discuss the investment with the local community.
“This exciting project will help make Victoria’s North East one of the world’s top destinations for trail cycling, boosting tourism, growing jobs and supporting our regional economy,” Premier Andrews said.
The North East Cycling Optimisation Project is expected to create up to 183 jobs and attract up to 393,000 visitors each year once the new extension and enhancements are completed.
“This is a fantastic project to be part of…it will bring more visitors to experience our beautiful region, which will be great for local jobs, businesses and communities,” Ms Symes said.
The project will help deliver world class cycling infrastructure with new sections of trail linking historic gold rush era towns and diggings, Aboriginal sites of local significance and some of Victoria’s most beautiful scenery.
