Ms RYAN — I recognise members of the Heathcote Lions Club, who have entirely funded a beautiful new rail trail shelter on the O'Keefe rail trail. Last week I had the opportunity to look at the final product with members of the Friends of the Bendigo–Kilmore Rail Trail when the Great Victorian Bike Ride came through town. The shelter has been built by a local, Joe McMahon, and is a wonderful example of beautiful craftsmanship.
For the benefit of the Minister for Regional Development I highlight the value of extending the rail trail through to Kilmore, a project I supported before last year's election with a commitment of funding for a feasibility study for this phase. I look forward to continuing to work in partnership with the local community on this project. Heathcote Tourism and Development is also developing a plan for spur trails to local wineries and to local attractions, such as Pink Cliffs.
