Kahurangi National Park

The Cobb Dam Road re-opened in December after being closed since February 2018 because of damage from ex-tropical cyclone Gita. Slips were cleared and the road is now much improved with extra work carried out widened corners in several places between the power station and the ridge top. Tasman District Council in conjunction with Trustpower and DOC maintain the road.

Abel Tasman National Park

Extremely dry conditions have forced some temporary closures to huts on the Inland Track. The hut closures are Awapoto Hut, Wainui Hut (including access through Wainui Saddle and Birds Clearing), Moa Park Shelter, Castle Rock Hut and Holyoake Clearing Shelter. The Inland Track is closed but Rameka Track, Harwoods Hole Track and Rawhiti Cave Track remain open.


Mt Richmond Forest Park

Due to high fire danger all access to tracks in Mt Richmond Forest Park through forestry land is closed until further notice. The only entry possible is by the Pelorus Track from SH6 at Pelorus Bridge via the Maungatapu Road, or at the southern end of the Alpine Route through the Red Hills near St Arnaud.
