Storm damage to Moses Creek track


17 June 2005 Update - The Moses Creek Track is now cleared and open to walkers

Walkers intending to use the Moses Creek Track in the Walls of Jerusalem National Park are advised that storm damage has made the track nearly impassible.

Parks staff have therefore issued the following advice:

Until further notice the Moses Creek Track to Grail Falls should only be used by walkers that are familiar with the track or experienced walkers that are appropriately equipped and competent in using a map and compass.

Work to clear the fallen trees will be undertaken starting in mid-May and will take some weeks.

Recent storms brought down about 50 very large myrtle trees that have fallen across the track and walkers attempting to go around the trees would find it very difficult to regain the track.

The Moses Creek Track (which begins at the southern most point of the Mersey Forest Road) to the spectacular Grail Falls is popular with day walkers. It is also used by more experienced bushwalkers travelling to Junction Lake, on to the Never Never route to the Overland Track and as access to the Cathedral Range.
