All tracks open at Cradle Mountain


All tracks at Cradle Mountain, including the Overland Track and side tracks, are open, following an easing of the recent fire threat.

Cold and damp conditions experienced since Sunday, January 21, have halted the spread of a bushfire in the Fury Gorge west of Cradle Mountain. The fire has burnt about 90 hectares and is not yet contained.

Parks and Wildlife Service officers are requesting that overnight walkers, including those walking the Overland Track, report their movements to the Cradle Visitor Centre and obtain a briefing before beginning their walk.

For the latest information about the bushfire in the Fury Gorge, the Overland Track and walks in the Cradle Mountain area, please contact the Cradle Visitor Centre on 6492 1133.
