UPDATE ( May 4, 2018)
Flagstaff Hill Walking Trail has re-opened from the stairway at the north of Four Mile Beach to the Look out on Flagstaff Hill (Island Point Rd).
The trail from Rex Smeal Park to the Look out junction remains closed.
Council asks everyone to obey signage and avoid the closed area until further notice.
Several washouts, landslips and fallen trees have forced Douglas Shire Council to close the track until further notice.
This is to ensure public safety.
Council asks everyone to obey signage and avoid the area until crews have cleared the track.
Council appreciates your patience during this time.
