Southern Flinders Rail Trail extension to Booleroo Centre officially opened
Posted on 22/09/21
The Hon David Spiers MP and the Hon Dan van Holst Pellekaan MP, with assistance from the Mayor Philip Heaslip of Mount Remarkable Council, officially opened the Melrose to Booleroo Centre section of the Southern Flinders Rail Trail in South Australia on Friday 17 September.
This 17km section increases the length of the Southern Flinders Rail Trail to 39km. The new trail section crosses four creeks as it moves through open farmland. Catering for bike riders of all ages and skill levels, the rail trail is both a great tourist attraction and a recreational facility for the local community.
Shortly after the opening of the Melrose to Booleroo Centre section, the first sod was turned to commence work on the Booleroo Centre to Stone Hut section of the rail trail, a distance of 25km. When combined with existing small sections of rail trail at Wirrabara, Stone Hut & Laura the total length of the trail will be 78km.
