TEST BED 356

For many years the Association has advocated their support for the creation of a “Military Heritage Trail” as the Cape Peninsula was once the most heavily defended locations in the Southern Hemisphere.

Also for years we have liaised with the City and Province with plans for such a trail but as the sites are all controlled by our heritage agencies and their tiered administration system, to date we have been unsuccessful. However, the City’s Tourism Development Department has “gone it alone” and linked a trail of destinations that are  “tourism ready” and hence only need visitors to arrive. They have all been around for years.  The only investment is in some pamphlets!
