Access Restricted at Mt Field National Park Due to Fire Danger

22/01/2009

The Parks and Wildlife Service has advised that access to part of Mt Field National Park will be restricted until further notice due to a bushfire four kilometres north-west of the park in the Broad River Valley.

Parks and Wildlife Service spokesperson Liz Wren said that Forestry Tasmania crews are working to contain the fire,
however the partial closure of the park is a precaution due to the forecast weather conditions for today.

"The safety of visitors to our parks and reserves is paramount and given current conditions, fires may be difficult to control," Ms Wren said.

The Lake Dobson Road is closed and all facilities at Lake Dobson closed until further notice. Parks staff are contacting bushwalkers on the plateau and they are being relocated.

Visitor facilities in the day use area around the visitor centre and cafe remain open including the campground and Russell Falls, Tall Trees and Lady Barron walking tracks.

Visitor should be aware there may be additional closures at short notice if weather conditions change. For further information contact the Mt Field Visitor Centre on 6288 1149.
