May 2006 saw the start of a major project to
upgrade many of the heavily used walking Tracks on Castle Hill.
Funding was received under the Sport and Recreation Queensland (SRQ)
Major Facilities Program 2006 with equal contributions of $195,750.00
each from Council and the Queensland Government ($391, 5000 total).
The purpose is to help provide good quality safe trails for recreation
and exercise. Some tracks, such as the well known Goat Track are
being improved by continuing efforts from previous years, while
other tracks are a result of long term informal use by local residents
which will be formalised into safer, more sustainable tracks as
a result of this project.
