Many people find the concept of the Trail an exciting one, even if they have no intention of ever walking or riding along it. There can be a great sense of satisfaction or national pride in knowing that such a facility exists, and appreciating how it is linked with the natural and cultural heritage of Australia. In this sense it can be compared with some of Australia’s major but remote national parks which are visited by only a small fraction of the population, but receive the strong support of many other people who take comfort in the knowledge that they can provide something special for future generations to enjoy. The same can be said for the National Trail.
