Safety alerts: Asbestos risk on New England Wilderness walk
On the Brinerville section of the Wilderness walk there are several buildings destroyed by bushfire that contain asbestos. These sites are identified with warning signs. Walkers must not approach any destroyed buildings due to the risks from burnt/friable asbestos. The asbestos will be removed in the coming months as part of bushfire recovery works.
