Reckless damage and littering on the Gippsland Plains Rail Trail
A number of trees have been illegally cut down and a large amount of litter deposited in the Fells Creek area of the Gippsland Plains Rail Trail.
An investigation has been launched by the Office of the Conservation Regulator and the Gippsland Plains Rail Trail Committee of Management.
They say 11 trees were illegally felled to create a camping area and there has been widespread littering offences. Concealed cameras have also detected several vehicles driving along the rail trail. DELWP says this activity is not permitted and creates a safety risk for trail users.
