New and upgraded infrastructure to be delivered under the project will include:
Wagirra Trail extension
Providing a sealed and accessible trail for all abilities and fitness levels, the extension will comprise an additional 12km pathway, linking key recreational tourism assets and providing access to wonderful scenery around Wonga Wetlands and the Murray River.
There will also be an extension of the highly successful Yindyamarra Sculpture Walk which has already achieved national and international recognition.
Wonga Wetlands Visitor Education & Experience Centre
Set in an ecosystem of man-made lagoons and billabongs covering 80 hectares, Wonga Wetlands is a birdwatcher's paradise.
Set within the natural environment, the centre will provide a high quality, sustainable, multi-purpose visitor and education experience and increased opportunities for eco-tourism, school groups and private events. View the concept designs
