The Heysen Trail through the Deep Creek Conservation Park will be closed from 6.00 am Monday 13 May to 12.00 am on Friday May 17, 2019.
The purpose of the closure of the entire conservation park is to protect public safety during an Aerial feral animal control program.
Campsites and other walking trails in The Deep Creek Conservation Park will also be closed during this time.
The trail will be closed between Blowhole Creek and the eastern boundary of the Deep Creek Conservation Park, Tunkalilla (end of McGregor Rd track). Warning signs and trail closure signs will be placed at several locations along the trail and at the western and eastern approaches to the park.
The Fire Danger Season for the Mt Lofty Ranges has been extended to May 12, 2019. This animal control closure from May 13 to May 16 effectively delays the 2019 Heysen Trail opening within Deep Creek Conservation Park to Friday May 17, 2019.
