Five bridges earmarked for replacement this (financial) year will shortly be removed from the Hume and Hovell Track. These bridges pose significant risk to the user and it will be safer to cross the creeks and gullies without them. There is little or no water in these waterways at present. Please proceed with caution and use care when crossing these creeks and gullies.
The bridges are:
Wee Jasper area:
The first two bridges encountered in Wee Jasper State Forest when heading south from Fitzpatrick Trackhead (both currently across dry gullies)
Pompey Pillar area:
The first bridge across Miller’s creek when heading south from Log Bridge Creek campsite. This creek currently has a small amount of water in it.
The next bridge when heading south from the Miller’s Creek bridge (crosses a small dry gully flowing into Miller’s creek)
The bridge across Pompey Pillar Creek. This creek currently has a small amount of water in it.
Thank you for your understanding while we undertake important Hume and Hovell Track maintenance and infrastructure replacement.
