Murray Falls bridge receiving upgrade

25 January 2017

Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) is upgrading a bridge along the main access road into Murray Falls camping and recreation area in the Girramay National Park.

Murray Falls Road will be closed from Monday 30 January for around two months, depending on weather conditions, with no alternative routes available during this period.

Acting Executive Director for Northern Parks and Forests, James Newman said the $300,000 Queensland Government capital works project included upgrading the bridge to allow for improved access through the wet season along the main road.

“As a result of the upgrade members of the public will not be able to access the beautiful Yalgay Ginja Bulumi walk, Murray Falls or Girramay National Park River boardwalk,” Mr Newman said.

“When the road re-opens in around 8 weeks, people will once again be able to visit the National Park for camping, bush walking and viewing the Murray Falls.

“The Murray Falls day-use area is a great location for a picnic or for the more adventurous, a walking track through the rainforest with a beautiful lookout that has views of the falls and the Murray Valley.”

The falls can be viewed from the boardwalk and viewing platform only.

Members of the public can visit park alerts for further updates.
