The Flagstaff Hill Walking Trail at Port Douglas has been re-opened following upgrades to a stretch of the track.
The upgrade, completed ahead of schedule, involved installing 14 new concrete steps on the Rex Smeal Park end of the trail.
More than 20 armour rock plates were then installed on parts of the track that had been previously washed away in heavy rain or flooding.
Further track works will be undertaken after the wet season on the small section of track between the lookout and the main track.
The work was completed by Papillon Landscapes.
