Following on from our earlier update, we’ve been negotiating with stakeholders and can now announce that the Heysen Trail has been restored and re-marked to the original route through Wirrabara Forest. This removes the 44km temporary re-route which went around the entire forest and via the town of Wirrabara.
There are two small re-routes in the northern section of the forest.
Sampson Flat Fireground Re-Opening and Re-Routes
Following the January 2015 Sampson Flat Bushfire the Heysen Trail has been re-marked through the fireground, from Nugget Road to near Kersbrook.
A temporary re-route is in place from Chain of Ponds to Kersbook.
