Great Walk Opens to Bikes

Eco-tourism in the Whitsundays had a welcome boost this week as National Parks, Recreation and Sport Minister Steve Dickson officially opened a new mountain biking trail along the Whitsunday Great Walk. The world famous walking track through the Conway National Park will now function as a 36 kilometre dual walking and biking track, opening the area up to new recreational activity and eco-tourism opportunities. Airlie Beach mountain bike enthusiast Peter Claxton said he had been "banging on the door" for about two years to get the track opened up and would now be starting a mountain bike club.
