Access issues inherited from Townsville

Most areas are free to access to the public, some are closed for short times during the year due to car, bike and running races and other events such as flooding, bush fires or land slides after heavy rain. but they will open again soon after.

Ethic inherited from Townsville

Marking the rock at the start of the climbs used to be the norm, this is now frowned apon
