This event is to give further inpetus to the proposal and to inform others.
The intention is to provide a walking/ bike track as far down the East Coast, as possible and developed over time, beginning at Scamander or perhaps St.Helens. Land which is presently inaccessible will be able to be enjoyed by all."
