Simmos Beach Trail Network Opens

New stairs, small bridges and a kayak ramp are among the new features now open at Simmos Beach Reserve.

Finding your way through the reserve is now easier than ever with new signage also installed throughout the nature space network.

Thirty nine signs now mark the route, providing details about the five different walking tracks across the reserve.

Track upgrades include new stairs and small bridges to provide a safer walking experience and help stop erosion on the river trails as well as the new kayak ramp on the banks of the Georges River.

Mayor George Brticevic said the trail network and upgrade works would make traversing the reserve easier for visitors.

“Simmos Beach is an important asset and home to many threatened species in Campbelltown,” Cr Brticevic said.

“The new signage makes it easier for bushwalkers to find their way around the reserve and the track upgrades will ensure it’s an even more enjoyable experience for people while also reducing the environmental impact,” he said.

Each trail was named by Year 9 and Year 10 biology students from James Meehan High who researched the reserve’s history and the different flora and fauna in the area to help come up with the names.

Council contributed $80,000 with another $20,000 contributed by Macquaire Fields MP Anoulack Chanthivong through the NSW Government’s Community Building Partnership fund.
