Popular Killarney hiking spot closed off
KILLARNEY’S iconic Queen Mary Falls will undergo part of a $55,000 upgrade this week to improve safety.
A Department of Environment and Science spokesman said the funding would see infrastructure revamps, which have been ongoing in the Main Range, close down sections of the Queen Mary Falls circuit.
“The current closure to the lookouts and walking track are for routine maintenance work to maintain them in good condition and provide safe access for visitors,” he said.
“New seats will be installed at Waterfall and Cliff lookouts providing enhanced opportunities for visitors to enjoy beautiful views at their leisure.”
The temporary closures will last until Friday, November 20.
Closures include the western branch of the cliff circuit, Queen Mary Falls circuit walking track (picnic area west to Queen Mary Falls lookout junction) and Queen Mary Falls lookout.
