Wetlands project to boost visitor numbers to area

SALE Rotary Club is driving a $1.4 million plan to boost visitor numbers to Sale Common, recognised as a wetland of international significance.

The Sale Wetlands Trail Project will upgrade paths, signs and aging infrastructure at the 310 hectare site and link it to the highly popular Lake Guthridge and Lake Guyatt pathways.

Sale Rotary Club vice-president Philip Davis said a key element of the project was upgrading the Flooding Creek Trail along the eastern edge of the common.

Gippsland MHR Darren Chester is backing the plan.
