Big Rock & Flinders Peak, Restriction changes 5-Apr-2013 At 2:55:53 PM Access T CliffCare
Hi All,

Following some work I have been undertaking with Mark Urqhuart and his team at the You Yangs, please see the official statement below. This is in effect as of the 31st March, 2013

Parks Victoria has recently reviewed rock climbing arrangements at the You Yangs Regional Park. Through discussions with Cliff Care, Licensed Tour Operators and park staff, a number of restrictions have been changed. These changes are consistent with the changes with the Parks’ usage, visitation and demand for recreational experiences, along with the absence of Peregrine Falcons from the east side of Flinders Peak for a number of years.

* The Sunday and Public Holiday closures to climbers on Big Rock has been removed.

* The permanent seasonal closure of sites on the east of Flinders Peak from August to November has been removed. A temporary closure of sites may be invoked if the birds return, with closures posted on site and within Argus.

Further changes to increased access are being investigated and will be posted in due course.

I shall keep you informed as to other progress in the area.
