The Campaspe River Walk received a facelift over the weekend and is now open to the public.
The restoration project was part of the Federal Government’s National Disaster and Relief Arrangement initiative.
Campaspe Shire gravelled the entire walking track last week.
Campaspe River Walk committee president Paul Poort was pleased with the job and said it had not lost its bush-style appeal.
‘‘The path is still winding and undulating,’’ he said.
Mr Poort was pleased the track was now wheelchair accessible.
He said the upgrade reduced track maintenance and would attract more people to use it.
