Port Hills tracks within the Civil Defence Restricted Area are temporarily closed.
Civil Defence is recommending no recreational activities take place within the yellow line on this map until further notice.
Please stay well away from these tracks so that emergency services can do their job. We will reopen tracks as soon as Civil Defence reduces the Restricted Area.
