According to reports in the Examiner Newspaper and ABC Northern Tasmania radio (13 June), Forestry Tasmania has re-opened the access roads to the Blue Tier which had been shut due to washouts since last year.
Hopefully this means that access to Poimena and the top of the Blue Tier Descent is open again.
If anyone gets up there and confirms it let us know.
