New walking trails will be ready to explore in just a few weeks, with work underway on the river walkway link from Lower Sterne street in Eastgrove through to Cemetery street.
This new part of the network is fully funded by the Goulburn Mulwaree Council, and will be 1.5km in length when completed by the end of June this year. Running along the Mulwaree River, it has been anecdotally named the Mulwaree River Walkway.
Mayor Bob Kirk said this area of Goulburn was another "gem waiting to be discovered".
"I think many residents will be pleasantly surprised when the project is complete," he said.
"The 1.5 kilometre walkway will feature a lot of native trees and bushland, and will pass under the railway line and then Sydney road, before linking with Cemetery street."
Following completion of this link, the council will shift focus to the next stage of the river walkway network, a 2.7km long link between Cemetery street and the Joseph's Gate subdivision.
This section is being joint funded by the Federal and NSW Government, with $2 million contributed through the Bushfire Local Economic Recovery Fund. It will feature a low level river crossing behind the Goulburn Correctional Facility, with construction slated to begin towards the end of this year.
The Goulburn Mulwaree Council has completed more than 10.3 kilometres of pathway as part of the river walkway network, with these two extensions to total a further 4.2 kilometres, bringing the total to 14.5 kilometres.
