Telowie Gorge Conservation Park closure affects access for Heysen Trail walkers.

Heysen Trail access affected by temporary closure of  Telowie Gorge Conservation Park

across the Gulf

Telowie Gorge Conservation Park will be closed from 6am Saturday, 16 February 2019 until 6:00 pm on Friday 22 February 2019. Walkers will not be able to use the Heysen Trail in this area.

As the fire danger season has commenced, walkers should be aware that most sections of the Heysen Trail are already closed.

However, as this section of the Trail passes through a Conservation Park, walkers would normally still have access unless a total fire ban has been announced for the day.

The Park closure is for the purpose of undertaking a pest control program.

The Telowie Gorge Conservation Park is found on Heysen Trail Sheet Map 6A and Map 2.7 of the Heysen Trail Northern Guide.

Walkers intending to use the Heysen Trail in that area in the next week need to be aware of this closure.
