Neale Watson, National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) Area Manager said unfortunately the closures will be in place over the Easter long weekend.

"These urgent repair works will fix sections of the elevated platform walkways located near the summit of the mountain.

"If the weather is favourable and works go as planned – we will be able to re-open the precinct in time for the April school holidays, if not earlier.

"In recent years NPWS has upgraded ladders to allow walkers to negotiate steep cliffs to reach the top of the mountain, and regularly maintained the track surface to manage soil erosion.

"This iconic walk in Morton National Park attracts more than 10,000 visitors annually and these works will make for a much safer and enjoyable experience.

"Easter-time visitors may want to check out the NPWS website for a list of other bushwalks in the park," Mr Watson said.

Pigeon House Mountain Didthul has been given dual name status in recognition of its cultural significance to Aboriginal people on the south coast.
