*&%$#! marvellous story, that. I need to get a kelpie and have it trained as an assistance dog so I can take it out bush. Although carrying food would be a *&%$#! . . .

I get the feeling it is a question not often asked:
"Currently there is no permission for dogs to be allowed onto any reserves in Western Tasmania, which includes the Mt Murchison and Mt Farrell Regional Reserves that were listed in the enquiry."

Thanks WCC/Parks Qtwn for your help.

This is the sign opposite the walker resistration box at Roland (I remembered them situated the other way around). Pleased to note that firearms are prohibited and dogs are welcome! The way it should be :wink:

I do agree, the mountain tracks get a lot of local participation and it's great to see people accommodated wherever there isn't an outstanding reason. Just interpreting the signs it appears dogs allowed to Roland summit but not along the traverse?

And yet the Face Track sign says no dogs. Someone needs to make up their mind. If they have one . . .

ps: there are also signs there at the moment warning about packs of wild dogs being sighted in the area.
