This Week’s Highlight: Construction of Walking Track in Kakadu National Park

The two years of pandemic and lockdowns has forced many of us to rediscover our local suburbs on foot as we attempted to maintain some pattern of exercise or just get outdoors with our families. Weekend, mid day and afternoon walks were common and we made use of local facilities such as council walking tracks. As a result many opportunities have popped up over the last 12 months to improve these facilties at all levels of government, from local council tracks to those run by federal agencies that are also preparing for a resurgance of tourism over the coming 12 months.

As such, this week we look at an opportunity looking to Upgrade Gunlom Falls Walking Track in Kakadu National Park (KNP). This project aims to provide an authentic and culturally sensitive experience for visitors to Gunlom Falls located in KNP. The national park is owned by the Bininj/Mungguy people and leased to the Director of National Parks. It is jointly managed by National Parks and its traditional owners through a Board of Management as such, cultural senstivity is a key feature of this requirement. The works are to be carried out with careful minimal disturbance to the natural environment both during and after construction, this includes working with local materials. The outcome is to provide a suitable standard for visitor walking, viewing and amenity. The works combine the construction of a new alignment of the track with a general upgrade of existing infrastructure, signage, and wayfinding and include:1. Track Construction: limited to the construction of a gravel walking track, with drystone stairs, pads and seats located at rest areas along the track.

2a. Track Infrastructure – supply and install of mild steel shelters, hand rails, existing ‘I’ Beam paint treatment, custom mild steel framed seat w/ timber top and aluminium boardwalk

2b. Signage – supply and install of mild steel perforated/lazercut elements (shelter roofs, trailhead panels, handrail panels, cultural storyboard blades), mild steel wayfinding posts, and aluminium panels w/ printed graphic (trailhead interpretation panels, cultural storyboard interpretation panels, wayfinding panels, Parks Australia required signage.

The contract is expected to commence on 4 July 2022 and conclude on 4 July 2023 with an option for a further 12 month extension.This RFT Closes on 23 June.
