|The Georges River Way is part of The Great Kai'mia Way, and is a great opportunity for walkers, cyclists and all members of the community to enjoy the foreshores of Georges River & its tributaries.
|It is a vision of sustainable walking tracks and cycleways linking Botany Bay, Woronora Valley, parts of southern and western Sydney and Illawarra Escarpment.
Like the idea?
It is part of an important initiative to bring the Georges River back to good health and to improve the recreational opportunities for millions of people living in Georges River catchment and around Sydney.
Community benefits include:
Historically, the Georges River has suffered from a lack of vision. We have the opportunity now to plan and build new cycleways, walkways and paths. We will not have this opportunity in future as continuing urban development will reduce the opportunites for foreshore access.
- Improved public foreshore access.
- Enhanced recreational opportunities.
- Greater awareness of river and catchment issues.
- Improvement in the natural environment of foreshore land.
- Educational opportunities.
- Opportunities to learn about Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal heritage.
- Enhanced co-operation between Community, Industry and Government.
- Public health benefits associated with linked walkway and cycleway opportunities
If our forebears lacked vision, the same vision we need now, we would not have the Royal National Park today! Our grandchildren are dependent on our decisions.
If you are a walker, bush walker, jogger, bicycle rider, or environmentalist, you will be able to get out and enjoy the Georges River Way!
