Echo Point is open for now, but this may change later today. National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) also has extensive closures in the area.
Mayor Mark Greenhill said it’s important for the community to remain vigilant.
“The Ruined Castle bush fire continues to burn in the Jamison Valley, Cedar Creek and Narrow Neck Plateau areas today,” Cr Greenhill said. “Firefighters have been working hard to slow the spread of the fire through the valley.
“Listen to the advice we are being given by emergency services. Be alert. Follow your Bush Fire Survival Plan.”
“To our emergency services workers, I express the gratitude of our community.”
