New signage has been installed in and around Karumba telling some of the stories from the first inhabitants, to exploration, pioneers, environment, economy and community.  29 sign frames are in place with 26 already completed with storyboards.  More are under development.    






   Great to see so many enjoying walking, jogging, cycling and generally getting out along the track which is some 3-4 km from Karumba town to Karumba Point.

Many long term residents, businesses and really the whole local community has worked long and hard to see this project realised - some 15years of planning, lobbying, seeking funding and working towards this end result.  So now we will all be strongly encouraging and promoting for people to keep in mind the track travels through sensitive environmental areas so everyone needs to be responsible, take care of and look after this wonderful new community asset so all can enjoy it.
