Heysen Trail through Wirrabara Forest to Re-Open

Wirrabara Forest views - Heysen Trail through Wirrabara Forest to ReopenThe Heysen Trail will soon be restored to its original alignment through Wirrabara Forest.

A temporary 44km re-route has taken the Trail around the forest since the devastating January 2014 Bangor Bushfire.

We are currently undertaking re-marking works. Extensive trail signs and infrastructure in the 41km section were damaged or lost. We will publish advice when the trail is re-opened to hikers. In the meantime hikers will need to continue to use the 44km re-route. Re-marking of the original alignment will include removing signs pointing to the temporary re-route.

UPDATE July 2015: The trail through Wirrabara Forest has been restored, with two minor re-routes.
