Trying to find any updates on the closure of these tracks. Does anyone know the outcome if any of the court case?
Thanks

You could you contact staff at Arthur River for advice on track conditions (03 6457 1225) and ask them.

I didn't read all their site but you could scan it at: http://www.parks.tas.gov.au/indeX.aspX?base=20598

Try the Balfour track while you are there. But I recommend going with at least one other car and no trailers. The water was lapping our windscreen. Good solid base to all but one crossing. Be wary of any bypass. Check them thoroughly as they can be worse than the main one.

Balfour Part 1. Water crossings start at about 2:20

You could maybe try contacting the Braddon 4wd club in Tassie and ask to get in contact with Rodney about the subject. We hung out down around there with that club over New Years just gone, and i recall Rodney mentioning the injunction that had happened days earlier.... if my memory serves me correct i believe he may have something to do with the fight to reopen that area (can't remember exact details though). Either way, the guy is a fountain of knowledge on that area and was a fantastic tour guide the day he showed us around the Sandy Cape area.

There is a case before the court trying to gain access to areas that are currently off limits for 4wding, it looked as though we would have access to this area at the end of last year before an injunction happened a few days before Xmas. I don't know the exact specifics of the case and the area they are trying to access, but i believe after speaking to members of the Braddon 4wd club at New Years when we were down there, from memory it's South of Sandy Cape somewhere (happy to be corrected if i'm wrong).

I probably should say i assume that is what the O.P was asking about, as access to Balfour Track and Sandy Cape was no worries back at New Years, so i assumed they were asking about the court case in there original question.
