Today the Eurobodalla Shire Council announced Rocky Trail Destination as the project lead agency for the new Mogo Adventure Trail Hub (MATH) development on the NSW South Coast. The details looks tasty and there’s going to be no shortage of trails to ride….
The 155km trail network will comprise about 125km of new trail and formalisation of the 30km of existing mountain bike trails in Mogo State Forest and Deep Creek Dam. It is based on the masterplan approved in 2020 and will connect to Mogo and Batehaven.
The $8 million project will be built using a $5 million grant from the NSW and Australian governments’ Bushfire Local Economic Recovery Fund and a $3 million grant from the NSW Government’s Growing Local Economies fund. The hub has the potential to attract 45,000 visitors to Eurobodalla in its first year of operation, resulting in an estimated $11.8 million injection to the local economy.
“We are confident to deliver the project for the benefit of all stakeholders, supporting the local Eurobodalla Shire Council and community for the new tourism and recreation asset to sustainably complement the region’s richness of existing experiences”, said Project Leader Martin Wisata and confirmed that the team had appointed Next Level Mountain Bike as the principal construction partner.
Trails designer Marcelo Cardona said the company lived and breathed mountain biking. Marcelo Cardona is the founder of Next Level Mountain Bike and will head up the construction operations in Mogo. He said that his commitment was to enable plans to become to reality.
Rocky Trail Destination’s Juliane Wisata said that the team will see the Mogo trail and tourism destination development project through from start to finish, developing a tailored strategy that delivers whole-of-community benefits beyond the project timeline into the future.
More new trails in another great part of our nation is always a step forward and the team at Rocky Trail Entertainment have been delivering mountain bike events across the nation for sometime now. If they can deliver this project as well as they deliver their race events then it’s safe to say that the future trail destination of Mogo, NSW is in safe hands.
