Lake Dobson Rd closed

THE Lake Dobson Rd at Mt Field National Park has been closed due to the high fire danger in the Upper Derwent Valley. This road normally provides access to the alpine area of the national park.

Due to the potential threat to the alpine area of Mt Field by the Dawson Rd (Repulse)/Wayatinah fire, the Lake Dobson Rd was closed above the Tall Trees Track tpday. While the fire poses no immediate threat, there remains a risk that it may spot into the park with worsening conditions tomorrow (Tuesday) and Wednesday.
 
The Russell Falls Track and the Tall Tress Track remain open at this time.
