Walkers are advised that the following parks in the Southern Flinders Ranges will be temporarily closed while pest control programs are undertaken:
- Mt Brown Conservation Park and
- Dutchmans Stern Conservation Park
The closures will operate from 6.00am Saturday, 4th November 2023 until 2.00pm Friday, 10th November 2023.
The parks are shown on Heysen Trail Map sheets 6C and 6D.
For more information about these pest control programs or park closures, contact the National Parks and Wildlife Service on (08) 8841 3400. You can also view a full list of park closures and alerts on the Parks SA Alerts page.
Note: Many sections of the Heysen Trail are closed over the Fire Danger Season. The Country Fire Service has already announced the early commencement of the Fire Danger Season for the Flinders and Mid North regions.
However, walkers can still use some sections of the trail – the sections that are not on private land.
Those sections include National Parks, Conservation Parks and Reserves, forests and public roads, provided access to these areas isn’t closed and it is not a Declared Total Fire Ban day.
