Event Details

Exploring the ecological, eco-tourism and health benefits of the Richmond Vale Rail Trail 

Proudly supported by the Donaldson Conservation Trust

Our conference aims to address the local benefits of an active transport system, and identify areas such as the Richmond Vale Rail Trail that can be converted into a highly utilised system and corridor for active transport.

The RVRT concept offers walkers, naturalists, bird lovers and conservation students a wonderful chance to observe the scenic beauty and extraordinary ecological diversity along the trail, from the tidal swamps through to the rugged forests of the Sugarloaf Ranges, contained within the Stockrington State Conservation Area.  The RVRT offers a unique opportunity to all, as the gentle gradients along much of the rail trail make it suitable for most fitness and ability levels.

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) and Pathways to Sustainability (P2S) underpin the themes of this conference by bringing our attention to the benefits such a corridor could bring locally, such as Education and Conservation Studies, Health and Wellbeing, an intuitive trail with links to our Smart City, Recreation as well as the economic benefits through Tourism.
