Hi All,

Just a quick update re the access to birding sites on Ash Is. NPWS had proposed a key system for the gate on Milhams Rd and concerns were raised about this system. HBOC has been working with NPWS and a more flexible and workable system in now in operation. The gate will remain open 24/7 except on the infrequent occasions of very high tide when water floods the roads. When this occurs and in the interest of public safety, the gate will be closed and explanatory signs displayed. It is thought that the frequency of road flooding will also be reduced as a result of works that will raise the level of the road in some places. This system will be monitored and reassessed when NPWS puts together its full Plan of Management for the newly gazetted Hunter Wetlands National Park.
