About Us

The Bicentennial National Trail is overseen by a membership based, not for profit organisation, The Bicentennial National Trail Ltd (ACN 010 860 143). Also known at the BNT, The Bicentennial National Trail Ltd has a Board of voluntary directors supported by a host of dedicated volunteers who oversee the route of the Trail. We liaise with various land managers to maintain a continuous long distance trekking route down the eastern seaboard of Australia.

We have a major get together at our Annual General Meeting, usually held in October each year. The location of the AGM changes from year to year, but will be somewhere along the route of the Trail. The AGM provides an opportunity for members to express views about the future of the Trail as well as enjoy some social activities. We are often able to explore parts of the Trail in the area.

Recollections

What we have created is a place that belongs to every Australian.

Official Opening 1988

The next two days of riding were magic, with great stopping places for morning tea and lunch to give the horses a break, relaxed trails to follow, homesteads and properties nestled among the hills and feed and room for taped
