Community volunteer group achieves a milestone


A 20-year licence agreement with the Australian National University will ensure a long-time community project can take its next step.

The Bawley Point and Kioloa community in partnership with Shoalhaven Council have spent more than 11 years putting in a concrete pathway to link the two towns.

It's 2.5 kilometres making it the longest distance path built by a community volunteer group.

The agreement with the ANU means it can now push through university-owned land and continue south of the "Mud Holes/Shelley Beach" carpark on Murramarang Road.

Shoalhaven Mayor AMANDA FINDLEY says “This community pathway is a wonderful project that has seen the community come together and work in partnership with Council to improve facilities in their local area. A special mention should be made to the Kioloa RFS Brigade, Bawley Point RFS Brigade, Women’s group, Teenager’s group and the Men’s Shed.”
