The Capricorn Coast BUG has been instrumental in engaging stakeholders across the region to initiate the redevelopment of the Pineapple Rail Trail (Stage 2).

The redevelopment of the trail as a culturally and historically significant recreational and tourist cycle and walkway corridor between Yeppoon and Rockhampton

  • Need for a free/low-cost family friendly, multi-purpose and non-competitive exercise space outside the norms of organised sport
  • History – Indigenous Cultural and Historical Significance – Gawula (Mt Wheeler)
  • Environment – Maintenance of the corridor via Native Tree and Bush Tucker Planting, Weed Control and general Landcare and Bush Fire Mitigation practices
  • Education – Providing future generations with a safe place to exercise and learn about the natural environment that surrounds the region
