FOREST CLOSURE – HARVEST OPERATIONS – BONE GULLY (KANGAS)

Forest visitors please be advised that Bone Gully forest (aka Kangas) will be closed over the coming months due to harvest operations in the area.

Operations will be ongoing and the plantation closed to riders, walkers and other visitors.

Forest harvest sites can be dangerous places, involving heavy vehicles and machinery, falling trees and loud noise. For your own safety please keep out, follow all site signage and obey instructions from staff.

While Bone Gully has become a popular spot for bike riders, walkers and other visitors, it’s important to remember it is located within our commercial plantation estate. All trees in our 10,500ha Mount Lofty Ranges estate are replanted following harvest, allowing sustainable timber production into the future.

We’re looking forward to welcoming visitors back to the area once the work is done. For alternative places to ride and walk in the forest, click here.

A recent mountain bike trail audit by Trail Solutions Australia will be used to determine which existing mountain bike trails can be sustainably restored and where new ones can be designed and implemented. Plans for a better, safer carpark are also on the drawing board.
