It’s just been announced that the Rainbow Road and Molesworth station are closing from February 10th at 7pm until further notice due to extreme dry conditions and the associated fire risk.

Unfortunately due to the extreme dry conditions and fire risk, Rainbow Station, Rainbow Road and Molesworth will be collectively closing until further notice as of Sunday the 10th of February at 7pm. After this time the gates will be locked and no public access will be granted (no exceptions). We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and are hoping for some steady rain so that the road may reopen. We appreciate your support and understanding.
