The Holbrook Landcare Self-drive Ecotour, first released in 2002 has been upgraded with the help of a community grant from Greater Hume Shire Council and two keen Charles Sturt University work experience students.
“We had some enquiry from the public and the Holbrook Visitors Centre for copies of the Self-Drive Ecotour and realised that it was time for an update” says project Officer at Holbrook Landcare, Kylie Durant. “Lots more work had been done since 2002 and many more stories to be told. And we realised that by using the internet and QR codes, we could interact more with the users of the tour.”
Holbrook Landcare Network was able to provide work placement for two Charles Sturt University students – Rachel Daniel in 2015 who researched wrote the grant application, and Emma Banting who did much of the legwork with changing the signs, developing the brochure and website pages.
“It’s is great for Holbrook Landcare to be able to support the wider community, including our young people and students and we are grateful for the opportunity from Greater Hume Shire to support this project. We hope that the general public get a greater understanding of the amount and scale of environmental work undertaken by farmers and community in this district.” says Kylie
