We only receive a small amount of annual funding for general track maintenance and improvements from Latrobe City and Wellington Shires and from map sales. At times, this is insufficient to purchase all the necessary items required. We have a wish list as follows and the items on it would greatly improve the Track and contribute to the safety and enjoyment of walkers. We appreciate any financial or in-kind donation to help us reach our goals.

All donations would be acknowledged on the website. For further details, please contact Richard Florey on 61 3 5196 6182 or richarddflorey@gmail.com.

 

Here is our wish list

  • $500 to purchase sleepers, pickets and track markers to improve the Link Track from Tarra Valley Road to Diaper Track.
  • $300 to purchase sleepers and pickets to make the approach to Roberts Road on the Macks Creek Loop safer.
