Break O’Day Council has contracted TRC Tourism to undertake a Recreational Trails Strategy.

The Break O’ Day Recreational Trails Strategy will link the needs of the local community and visitors to our spectacular land and seascapes through enjoyable trail experiences.

Your views are important in developing the very best community supported trail experiences and we are very keen to hear from active trail users and those, that for whatever reasons do not currently use trails or would like to do more.

The purpose of the Strategy is to ensure through effective planning that recreational trail experiences are developed that contribute to the wellbeing of our Break O’Day community.

The Strategy will identify priority trails with community input and focus on ensuring trails are environmentally sustainable culturally appropriate and provide enjoyment across abroad range of ages and abilities in a variety of locations.

The Strategy will cover all recreational trail activities including but not limited to:

  • walking and bushwalking
  • trail running
  • cycling
  • mountain biking
  • aquatic trails
  • horse riding

The Recreational Trails Strategy will recognise the significant investment towards trail development throughout the Break O’Day region. The Strategy will provide a solid framework to guide future decision-making across the Break O Day Council area, and where these trails connect with the broader Northeast Tasmanian landscape.

We will be holding Drop-in Sessions to gather community input for the Strategy. See below for details:

If you are unable to make the session, you can still have your thoughts heard by taking the online survey:

Break O’ Day Trails Survey Drop in Session

Understanding the effect of visitation on our economy

In order to understand the effect that the mountain bike trails are having on our business community, we send out a survey twice a year.

The survey allows us to then compile, collate and compare data.

This information is not just helpful to us in terms of understanding growth and gaps in the business community but we can also send individualised reports to businesses if requested.

If you are a business owner in Break O’Day we would encourage you to take part in this survey.
