Mt Coolum walking track reopens after bushfire

THE Mt Coolum walking track has been reopened to the public.

It had been closed to walkers since Monday morning when a large bushfire spread across the top of the popular destination.

Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service officers inspected the track on Wednesday morning and reopened it to the public later that afternoon.

Walkers have been urged to obey all signage and stay out of closed areas.

Meanwhile, police are continuing their investigation into the cause of the fire which spread across about 50 hectares.

They have seized items from the scene which they said strongly indicated the fire had been deliberately lit.

It is believed to have started some time between 4am and 4.30am Monday, in the vicinity of Jarnahill Drive.

Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
