Applies from 27/4/2021, until 29/4/2021

​​The Parks and Wildlife Service will be undertaking track works on the Isthmus Track during April and May 2021. This work will upgrade the Hazards Beach access, improving protection of values and visitor safety.

The Isthmus Track will be closed to replace the beach access steps to Hazards Beach from 6am Tuesday 27th April - 6pm Thursday 29th April, and again from Monday 3rd-14th May.

During closures you will not be able to cross the Isthmus and access Hazards Beach from Wineglass Bay. Wineglass Bay will be accessible via the Lookout Track and via the Mt Graham Track throughout this per​iod.

Overnight walkers will need to walk the coastal route around Mt Mason. Wineglass Bay Track is open; you will need to return on the same track. ​
