The wheels are in motion to attract a new cohort of adventure-loving tourists to the Eurobodalla with the announcement of $3 million in NSW Government funding for a new nature trail network at Mogo in NSW’s South Coast region.
The Mogo Adventure Trail upgrade will connect Mogo to Batemans Bay with more than 80km of stacked loop mountain bike trails starting in the centre of the village.
The funding is expected to deliver upgrades and marking to existing tracks and trails, as well as building crucial missing links.
Member for Bega Andrew Constance said upgrades would include showcasing viewing points along trails, new bike parking, visitor seating and water facilities, as well as installing trail signage and direction markers, including interpretive signage at focus points such as Trail Heads.
“Mogo and the wider Eurobodalla region suffered a significant tourism decline due to the devastating New Year bushfires, with the road to economic recovery now blocked by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Mr Constance.
