Cape to Cape Track conditions and updates

Cape to Cape Track conditions and updates

Information below is updated during business hours. More up-to-date information is available from the Parks and Wildlife office closest to the area you are planning to visit.

Occasionally temporary Track closures are necessary due to maintenance projects, prescribed burns, bushfires or severe weather. If part of the Track is closed, a diversion may be marked and signage placed at either end. Check the current conditions in the area you are walking by clicking the relevant map below.

Between December and April campfire restrictions and prohibitions apply. Fires are never permitted at the on-Track camp sites but check at individual off-Track camp sites.

To keep yourself safe during this bushfire season:

  • Plan your walks for cooler periods of the year, avoiding the hot summer months.
  • Check the Fire Danger Rating and don’t go bushwalking if the forecast is Very High or above - leave the Track during multi-day hikes.
  • Avoid walking remoter sections of the Track where there is limited vehicle access for evacuation in the event of a bushfire.
  • Abide by all Track closure signage, and any instructions from Parks and Wildlife and other emergency staff.

The EmergencyAus app for Apple and Android provides up-to-date fire information.
