Unless you’re Crocodile Dundee there are two things you have to remember when walking through Simpson’s Gap in the West Macdonnell National Park, Northern Territory: Stick to the bike path and you’re not Crocodile Dundee.
Needing repair, the bike path and bridge have been upgraded using Replas’ Enduroplank™, which is made from recycled plastic rather than materials that are detrimental to the environment. Northern Territory Parks and Wildlife Minster Karl Hampton said, ‘Here at Simpson’s Gap repairs and upgrades to the Bike Path Bridge are now complete, leaving us a safer bridge for riders and a great natural aesthetic. Every year more than 120,000 people visit the magnificent West MacDonnell National Park, and by investing in our parks we are able to ensure visitors have a unique experience while we protect our environment.’
Using environmentally friendly and sturdy products like Enduroplank™ to maintain the bike path and bridge, has ensured that beauties like the West Macdonnell National Park can continue to be enjoyed without causing damage to the environment or risking a hiker stumbling across a crocodile.
