MEDIA REPORT | Orange action group against Mount Canobolas bike trail to host meeting

A newly-formed action group against Orange City Council’s proposed mountain bike trail will hold its first community meeting this weekend.

The Gannha-bula (Mount Canbolas’ traditional name in Wiradjuri) Action Group is led by Wiradjuri elders and leaders who oppose the 100km network of bike trails which council is hoping to build in the conservation area.

The whole community is invited to hear Uncle Neil Ingram Senior and other Registered Aboriginal Party (RAPs) representatives speak about their opposition to the development and the cultural significance of Mount Canobolas (Gannha-bula).

The meeting will commence at Orange City Bowling Cub at 11am on Saturday, November 6, and include a light lunch.
