Bridge Over Wakefield River
Wakefield Regional Council successfully applied for a Community Recreation and Sports Facilities Program grant of $62,000 to build a bridge over the Wakefield River to link the town to the Walk the Yorke trail. Holly Cowan, WRC Community Development officer, said crossing the river had trapped the odd trekker after flooding events. The plan is to put the bridge over the old rail pylons and install some signage. This bridge will give river crossing access by foot to locals also.

They stopped at a cheese farm, where a young guide led them through the process of cheese making, explaining that goat’s milk was used. She showed the group a hillside, on which many goats were grazing. ‘These,’ she explained’ are the older goats put out to pasture when they no longer produce.’ She then asked, ‘What do you do in Canada with your old goats?’ A sprightly old gentleman answered, ‘They send us on coach tours!’
