Twelve Apostles Trail boosts tourism and jobs in Timboon and Port Campbell21/01/2022
Visitors to the Great Ocean Road are set to benefit from a new bike and walking trail thanks to the Regional Infrastructure Fund. It will encourage more people to stay longer and experience what the hinterland region has to offer.
The Twelve Apostles Trail links Timboon to Port Campbell with a 20-kilometre bike and walking path, boosting the region’s tourism appeal by providing a scenic track from the stunning hinterland to the Great Ocean Road coastline.
The trail will further boost the local economy by bringing visitors to the doorstep of local gourmet food and farmgate businesses, with the Timboon section now complete.
The Victorian Government is investing $4.5 million towards the Twelve Apostles Trail to make the project a reality.
It will link to the Camperdown-Timboon Rail Trail in Port Campbell allowing visitors to experience even more of the Great Ocean Road.
The project will be enhanced by the Government’s $6 million investment in the Port Campbell Town Centre Revitalisation Project. Early works for the project’s streetscapes are already underway.
The Regional Infrastructure Fund is part of the Government’s flagship Regional Jobs and Infrastructure Fund, which helps businesses create more jobs in regional Victoria, supports community projects and helps councils to build the infrastructure locals need.
The Fund is key to the Victorian Government’s almost $30 billion investment across regional and rural Victoria since 2015. For more information, visit Regional Jobs and Infrastructure Fund.
