Avert Risk Management & Assure Event Safety Services were instrumental in the safe delivery of the Bicentenary of The Blue Mountains Crossing.
The event involved months of planning and considerable stakeholder liaison with Police, Council and the Department of Premier & Cabinet. The trek proved challenging from a planning perspective as it involved a historical re-enactment party with dogs and horses and a group of children from the local area.
The first day of the trek included a breakfast, rural crossing and a 14Km traverse on the road network of St Marys and Penrith.
The event was a success for all parties involved and culminated in a memorial service at the Nepean river which was hosted by the actor Jack Thompson.
