Consultation has concluded, feedback is being reviewed and will be reported back to Council.

Glenelg Shire Council is developing the Glenelg Shire Tracks and Trails Strategy for the region, with the aim of better development and promotion of tracks and trails within the shire.

Glenelg Shire recognises that access to a quality network of trails for recreation and commuting is an important factor in serving the community, promoting health and wellbeing by encouraging activity in the outdoors, for connecting communities, and for the growth of tourism and economic development.

A draft strategy has now been completed, and as a component of the consultation process, we would like to gather any feedback you may have about the draft strategy, the tracks and trails network across the region and/or any ideas or issues specific to your usage of tracks and trails.

The draft strategy includes a focus on;

  • Current state of our tracks and trails

  • Trail markets and trends

  • Building blocks to deliver a high class trail network

  • Trail categorisation

  • Priority recommendations for tracks and trail projects

  • Costs for development and upgrades and recommendations for funding


Progress Update

Targeted engagement has been undertaken to date with identified stakeholders and interested community members. Stakeholder feedback was taken into consideration while developing the Draft Glenelg Shire Tracks and Trails Strategy. The draft is now available for wider considerations and will be open for public feedback through 26 February 2020.

The Draft plan is available to view and provide feedback at any Glenelg Shire Customer Service Centre or on Your Say Glenelg.
