Show your support for the proposed Boorowa Galong (NSW) Rail Trail

The Boorowa Galong Rail Trail group, led by President Jim Ryan, has been successful in achieving around half the funding needed to do a feasibility study of the proposed rail trail, but more is needed to get to this important first step in rail trail design.
In advocating the likely benefits of the Boorowa-Galong rail trail, Mr Ryan has drawn a clear comparison with the success of the Tumbarumba to Rosewood Rail Trail (TRRT) further south in NSW. The Boorowa-Galong rail corridor is a similar length at 29km, runs through beautiful rolling countryside, and is close to great tourist facilities and to the Canberra population base. It is a recipe that would bring similar social and economic benefits to Boorowa and Galong that TRRT has brought to the Snowy Valleys region.
