Get Involved

At the heart of the BNT story is the volunteer spirit! The Bicentennial National Trail is a reality because of volunteers … people just like you who care enough about the Trail to devote time, money and energy to its maintenance and development. Without that spirit, the National Trail quite simply would not exist.

Much of our work is rarely noticed by the casual traveller. Yet the result, more than 5,000 kilometres of continuously marked track, is clear.

The ongoing development of the Bicentennial National Trail is coordinated by a non-profit community organisation. Income for developing and managing the Trail comes through memberships, donations and publication sales.

You can help by becoming a member, making a donation, volunteering your time or services, or by encouraging your friends to join.

Section Coordinators

Section Coordinators are the heart of the Bicentennial National Trail! They are volunteers who give time and energy freely to support the development of the Trail. They have a wealth of knowledge of local conditions. We occasionally have need for new section coordinators – let us know if you are interested in finding out more.

Trail Marking

Marking the National Trail is an ongoing task. Section Coordinators, experienced trail users and clubs can assist by locating or replacing trail markers according to the BNT Trail Marking Policy. Email the BNT Office at info@nationaltrail.com.au  for details .

Trail Clearing

At times, the route becomes overgrown. Section Coordinators, experienced trail users and clubs can assist by organising working bees to clear and maintain the route.

Recollections

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
