Regional Development Minister Alannah MacTiernan has today visited the site of a major new mountain bike park being constructed in Nannup, ahead of a staged opening of the attraction that will start next month.
Once complete, the Nannup Tank 7 Mountain Bike Park will be a major drawcard for the South-West town, with more than 30,000 enthusiasts a year expected to explore over 35 kilometres of fresh trails.
Designed to maximise Nannup’s unique natural elevation and make the most of its picturesque landscape including forests of tall trees, the park will offer trails to suit a range of abilities.
Beginners will enjoy getting on two wheels to connect with nature, while more adventurous riders will be tempted by gnarly trails including black and double black diamond options.
The project, which supports the Shire of Nannup’s aspirations to become recognised as a trail town, has been assisted through McGowan Government’s Regional Economic Development (RED) Grants.
Two separate grants of $46,881 and $100,000 have been provided through the funding program.
Additionally, the State Government has helped to secure $2.86 million for the project from the Commonwealth Government’s Regional Recovery Partnerships funding program.
