Sustainability, Environment and Conservation Minister Ian Hunter has approved the trail route for the northern section (stage one) of the Discovery Trail through Tennyson Dunes Conservation Reserve.
Stage one encompasses the majority of the Reserve from its northern boundary and south to an area adjacent to Tennyson Heights Court. Click here to view a map of the stage one trail route (PDF 8.5MB)
The stage one route will upgrade the current trail and is designed to minimise its environmental footprint, protect the sensitivity of Tennyson Dunes by predominantly using existing paths and maintain adjoining residents’ privacy and amenity.
A mix of trail surface options will be used including a natural product of compacted crushed rubble and a precast modular boardwalk. All materials and surface treatments have been specially selected to ensure the colours blend in with the surrounding natural environment.
Planning and public consultation to determine the route for stage one of the trail has been extensive and a wide range of views including those from residents, bike riders, environmental groups and walkers were considered in making the final decision.
Design and construction of the Tennyson Dunes Discovery Trail will be completed in two stages to ensure all possible trail options are given proper consideration and assessment.
The Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources is currently investigating the trail route options for the southern section (stage two), from near Tennyson Heights Court to Bournemouth Street. Consultation on stage two will be undertaken with residents and other stakeholders before a final decision is made.
Construction of stage one of the trail is expected to begin in October 2017.
