Push on to re­open our na­tional parks

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

QUEENS­LAND Na­tional Park rangers are work­ing around the clock to get as many Whit­sun­day na­tional parks open as pos­si­ble be­fore the Easter week­end.

Cy­clone Deb­bie im­pacted 223 parks and forests across Queens­land.

A large amount of de­bris needs to be cleared and in­fra­struc­ture re­paired be­fore parks can be safely opened.

How­ever, the iconic Hill In­let look­out track and White­haven Beach are al­ready open again.

Other Whit­sun­day Is­land na­tional parks cur­rently par­tially open in­clude Glouces­ter, Ngaro Sea Trail, Molle Is­lands, Chance Bay, Cairn Beach, Nara In­let, Mau­reen’s Cove, Steens Beach, Curlew Beach and Cray­fish Beach.

Re­pulse Is­land, Lin­de­man Is­land, Peak track, Du­gong Beach, Cairn track, Sawmill Beach, Nari’s Beach and Joe’s Beach are cur­rently closed.
