Great River Road
About the project
In 2016, Towong Shire Council developed the Upper Murray 2030 Vision Plan following a comprehensive community consultation process.
The plan identified and explored the implementation of ‘game changing’ projects for the Upper Murray, including The Great River Roadand Town Trails.
Stage 1 of The Great River Road was completed in 2019, during which a number of future extensions were identified. These ideas were earmarked to form Stage 2 of the project.
Stage 2 aims to build on the existing 153km Great River Road from Bellbridge to Khancoban, to make it a premier destination for drivers, motorcyclists, cyclists, bushwalkers and campers.
It involves the delivery of eight key projects identified by the Shire’s Community Recovery Committees to assist in the ongoing recovery process, including town trails, wayside stops and a marketing campaign.
The project is funded by a $5 million grant from the Victorian Government's Bushfire Recovery Regional Economic Stimulus and Resilience Fund.
