Walk a step closer

Vol­un­teers work on scenic path

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

THE river walk at Gayn­dah is one step closer to com­ple­tion.

The lo­cal Rotary Club got its hands dirty on Satur­day morn­ing as mem­bers con­tin­ued their ef­forts of build­ing a scenic walk along the Bur­nett River.

The com­pleted walk will be a sig­nif­i­cant de­vel­op­ment for Gayn­dah lo­cals and an ex­tra rea­son for tourists to visit.

The walk­ing track starts at the car­a­van park on Bar­row St and will fol­low the river’s edge to the swim­ming pool.

Ro­tar­ian and project co-or­di­na­tor Lex Web­ster said the club was “con­cen­trat­ing on the area be­hind Golden Orange (Ho­tel)” on Satur­day.

He said the project had be­come a fo­cus for the community.

“Matt Zill­man do­nated his bob­cat and his time and the SES boys have come to help out,” Mr Web­ster said.

Rotary will con­duct an­oth- er work­ing bee in early De­cem­ber and Mr Web­ster said the pub­lic was wel­come to go and lend a hand.
