Regional Tourism Trails

Contribution to PTPDP

The Pilbara Regional Trails Blueprint is geared towards the implementation of nominated, prioritised and costed trails projects within each Pilbara local government as an attraction and retention mechanism for regional visitation. Visitors to the Pilbara are often independent travelers. This demographic sometimes prefers to stay remotely and engage with regional population centres only for re-provisioning and other necessities. Port Hedland to Pretty Pool Foot Path, Point Samson Heritage Trail, Newman Sculpture Trail and Onslow Boardwalk

have all been identified by the Pilbara local governments as priority trails that will encourage visitation and enhance the visitor experience. The Pilbara Regional Council’s contribution to these trails will take the form of ensuring coordination between the various trails management bodies, seeking eternal funding to support the development of the priority trails, and production of a regional information booklet that will further drive awareness of these visitor experiences.
