Walking & Cycling Trail


A walking and cycling trail connecting Bannockburn’s town centre with its new Bannockburn Sport and Recreation Precinct has been opened by Member for Polwarth Terry Mulder.

In Bannockburn representing Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional and Rural Development Peter Ryan, Mr Mulder said the Victorian Coalition Government’s $1 billion Regional Growth Fund had invested $148,000 to the $222,000 trail, which will feature fitness equipment for the use of the public.

“The trail will mean Bannockburn residents will be able to walk, jog or ride from their homes to the town centre and sporting facilities,” Mr Mulder said.

“People of all ages and fitness levels are now able to use the walking and cycling path, which is a much healthier alternative to the car.

“The fitness equipment along the trail will bring the community together in a fun, interactive and social way. 

“Signs have been installed to encourage visitors to use the path, directing them to the many attractions of central Bannockburn, as well as nearby circuit paths and trails.

“This project makes Bannockburn a better place to live and that helps attract investment to the town.”

Mr Ryan said the Regional Growth Fund invested $148,000 while Golden Plains Shire Council contributed $74,000.
