The Wiradjuri Walking Track is Crown land managed jointly by the department and Wagga Wagga City Council. The 42km track circling the city allows walkers, joggers, mountain bikers and cyclists to explore riverbanks, hilltops and everything in-between.
As part of the ongoing maintenance program, the department allocated funds to the tune of $71,000 through the CRIFP to install a new bridge, carry out landscaping and remove graffiti, as well as regular mowing, weeding and slashing of the track.
A total revamp of one of NSW’s most popular holiday parks at Seal Rocks has been completed, with the final phase of the park improvement program complete, thanks to $2.366m from the CRIF.
This included a renovation makeover of existing accommodation, a new premium cabin and beach tent precinct, a brand-new waterfront guest lounge, barbecue area and new playground designed to integrate with its coastal surroundings and promote a more natural style of exploration and play.
