The new Central Highlands Mining Trail will be ready for the 2020 tourism season (starting on the Easter long weekend).
The Trail will be a 180-kilometre, self-drive route characterised by signage at key localities across the Bowen Basin – Capella, Lilyvale, Emerald, Blackwater and Bluff.
It is an initiative of the Central Highlands Development Corporation (CHDC) and BHP Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA).
To launch the Trail, the Gregory Crinum Mine Legacy video was premiered in late 2019. It reflects upon the 36-year history of the Gregory Crinum Mine Complex, north of Emerald, under the stewardship of former owner BMA.
“BMA is proud to celebrate, through this new video, the contribution that Gregory Crinum has made to the Central Highlands over the past 30 plus years,” BMA Asset President James Palmer said.
“And through the Central Highlands Mining Trail, this history will be opened up to a new generation of people who visit the Central Highlands.”
The video will be on permanent display at the Blackwater International Coal Centre and promoted widely online. Watch it below.
