The Government is asking for everyone to stay at home. Their advice is that you can go for a walk or exercise outdoors for a short time, but to stick to simple walks or exercise spots close to home.
If using one of our parks, always stay two metres away from anyone not in your household. If you take your dog, please keep it on a leash at all times to help avoid contact with other dogs. Take your dog poo home and dispose of it in your red bin.
Where there are gates and latches in parks, please avoid using your hands to open and close them. If gates are off their hinges or left open, please leave them as you find them.
Cemeteries are open for pedestrian access only.
The following are closed:

The Eastenders Track was named after the local volunteer group that constructed it. You can access the track from either the main sports ground car park at Barnett Park or at the end of Bay View Road.
From Barnett Park, walk across the sports field towards the head of the valley. A small bridge crosses a creek and the track starts to climb up the eastern flank. Here you leave the old track and follow the new one which branches off uphill. It follows a number of twists and turns to link up with a 4WD track and finishes at the stand of large pine trees on Summit Road.
