Walking tracks in the Mount Roland Conservation Area and Regional Reserve remain closed until further notice. It is envisaged that the walking tracks from O'Neils Road and Olivers Road will re-open soon, however the walking track from Kings Road will remain closed until a risk assessment is undertaken and the risk posed by any identified hazards have been mitigated.
