Update: Bush fire affected areas
Update (7 February 2020)
Council RESERVES, CAMPGROUNDS, LOOKOUTS and WALKING TRACKS
Recent bush fires have left significant hazards and damaged infrastructure in Council reserves. As a result, the following closures are still in place:
Mt Victoria / Mt York
- Berghofers Pass
- Coxs Road
- Lawsons Long Alley
- Lockyers Track
- Campground, day use area
- All cliffs, climbing & recreational areas
Mount York Rd is open as far as Bardens Lookout only.
- Popes Glen Reserve
- Pulpit Rock Reserve
- All bushland reserves
- Walking tracks and lookouts
- Cathedral campground
These areas will remain closed until they are safe for the public to re-enter. It's very important to stay out of burned bushland areas as there are a range of serious dangers and hazards. Trees damaged by fire may be dangerous and fall down or drop branches and limbs, and structures such as bridges, steps and safety railings may also be damaged and unsafe.
Council is currently working on the assessment and ‘making-safe’ of roads and reserves, which must occur before these areas can be re-opened.
