The Collie and Dwellingup Adventure Trails projects will put more than 180km of new walking and mountain bike trails on the ground over the next four years. The new trail networks will provide great opportunities to get outdoors, they will attract new visitors and support local businesses. To get ready for the trail building boom, Collie and Murray Shire residents are being given the opportunity to diversify their skills and join the trail construction industry. The State Government will run a five-day job ready trail construction training course to teach up to 20 participants a range of practical trail building skills to help them become job-ready. The course will cover subjects such as sustainable trail principles, trail features, dieback awareness, stonework and practical trail construction techniques. The course is coordinated and run by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries and the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions and will run from November 18 to 22.
