A re-elected Morrison Government will commit $1 million towards a new mountain bike park in Bindoon that will see the town become a premier cycling destination and attract thousands of tourists to the region.

The first stage of the project is expected to inject more than $50 million into the local economy over the next 20 years and involves the construction of almost 13 kilometres of trails suited to a range of riding abilities.

Liberal Member for Durack, Melissa Price, said the $1 million commitment was part of her long-term plan to support community sporting infrastructure.

“I have been listening to locals who are passionate about establishing a world-class mountain bike park in their backyard so they can take advantage of the significant economic opportunities this will provide,” Minister Price said.

“Mountain biking tourism is a rapidly growing area and there is a huge demand for new terrain and experiences.

“As we have seen in other parts of the country, mountain bike trails are a huge drawcard in bringing more tourists to regional towns like Bindoon.

“The Bindoon Bike Park will provide an important boost for the local community:”

If re-elected, the Morrison Government will deliver this project in partnership with the Shire of Chittering.

The development will also include trailhead facilities that includes a kiosk with bike hire and refreshment facilities, a change room and toilet block, barbecues and shelters, bike lockers and a car park.

Only the Morrison Government will continue to deliver investments like this for Durack as part of our plan to build a strong economy and a stronger future.
