Walkers are advised that access to the Heysen Trail in the Southern Flinders Ranges will be restricted from 6 am Saturday, 23 November 2019 until 6pm Friday, 29 November 2019.
Telowie Gorge Conservation Park, The Napperby Block of Mount Remarkable National Park, Spaniards Gully Conservation Park and Wirrabara Range Conservation Park will be closed for the purpose of undertaking a pest control program.
So walkers need to take note of this closure and avoid that section of the trail during those dates.
The Country Fire Service has already announced the commencement of the Fire Danger Season for the Mid North & Flinders Districts. As a result, much of the Heysen Trail is now closed in those areas.
The sections that remain open are principally those not on private land. These include public roads, Conservation Parks and Reserves, Forests and vacant land.
For more information about the control program or park closure, please contact the Natural Resources Centre on (08) 8841 3400. Further information can be found on the Parks SA Alerts page.
