The vision of the Munda Biddi Trail Foundation (MBTF) to complete the Trail from Mundaring through to Albany has been realised, and now work begins so the Trail can reach its iconic potential. Alongside this vision MBTF also have a goal to implement a Community Development Program in each of the communities and surrounding areas along the way.
To develop this Community Development Program the MBTF secured funding through the Regional Grants Scheme (R4R).
Cycle tourists require a variety of services as they travel light and are more reliant on local services than car based tourists. It is conservatively estimated that 25,000 people will be using the Munda Biddi Trail annually, injecting an estimated $13 million into the South West economy (based on an average trip of 3.5 days and spending $150 per day on transport, food, accommodation, supplies and equipment). Through the Munda Biddi Community Development Program the MBTF aims to educate, inform, and inspire stakeholder groups about this potential of cycle tourism, linking communities and businesses successfully to the potential of the Munda Biddi Trail as WA’s key iconic nature-based cycle touring experience.
“Have a cycle tourism industry (consisting of businesses and communities) ready for when the Trail is completed"
An integral part of the Community Development Program is the Cycle Friendly Business Program.
