William Ricketts Sanctuary - temporary closure

Following the significant storm event on 9 June, William Ricketts Sanctuary was heavily impacted by fallen trees and branches, blocked access to the car park and trails, and damage to numerous assets.

Unfortunately the Sanctuary will be closed for an extended period of time, as we work towards safely re-opening the site.  It is anticipated that the Sanctuary will not be re-opened in 2021.
