NICOLAS BOWMAN - National Director IMBA Australia

Australian Success Stories - a national fly-over of great Australian trails.

Abstract:

All too often trail advocates and organisations tend to focus on what is not happening. The common barriers of politics and policy and an overt sense of risk can drive the most committed community champion to distraction. Sometimes you just have to take a moment to ?smell the flowers' and realise what great achievements have been made across the nation in developing world class sustainable and often iconic trail assets.
