Ralph Falls track repair work under way

19/12/2014

The Parks and Wildlife Service has advised that works to repair and improve the visitor experience to Ralph Falls in the North-East, is under way.


Acting Northern Region manager, Stan Matuszek, said the Ralph Falls walking track to the lookout, in the Mt Victoria Regional Reserve, was closed some months ago following severe weather that damaged the track.


“We are pleased to advise that works are now under way to repair the circuit track, which is one of Tasmania’s 60 Great Short Walks, however the spur track to the Ralph falls Lookout will remain closed until further notice,”  Mr Matuszek said.


The picnic, barbecue and toilet facilities at the Ralph Falls car park remain open to the public. The track to Cash’s Lookout remains open and takes visitors through buttongrass plains to a platform providing scenic views of Mt Victoria.


The track is planned to re-open by 24 December, subject to favourable weather conditions for completing the works.


Works to repair the Mt Victoria Road, which was damaged by severe weather in August 2014, will begin in early 2015, after the peak holiday period. The gravel road remains open to traffic but is not suitable for large or towed vehicles.
