Notification of abseiling prohibition – The Springs Lookout, kunanyi/Mt Wellington

The TCIA have received notification from the Wellington Park Management Trust, and similarly posted on their Facebook page (as below), that The Springs Lookout may not be used for abseiling purposes. They will be posting signage and following up with compliance action, which means those caught using the site are likely to be fined.

The TCIA requests all members share this information amongst their relevant colleagues and reminds everyone to ensure they have land manager approval to use a site for any abseiling/climbing activities.
