I would like to say a huge thank you to Mudgee Council for the recent works at Flirtation Hill.
I had stopped walking up to Flirtation Hill because it was depressing seeing all the litter and muddy erosion caused by inconsiderate 4x4s drivers. I used to walk up there and spend 10 minutes every day picking up other people's litter and cigarette butts. After any rain you could guarantee a minority of 4x4 drivers would do burnouts and donuts on the grass area. The wildlife were also victims to cruel drivers who would intentionally go to Flirtation Hill and run them down.
- What do you think? Have your say
There are now metal poles securely concreted into the ground, at both access points to Flirtation Hill. This should effectively stop all those unauthorised 4x4s driving through between Nicholson and Madeira Street, churning up the ground and dropping their litter.
The natural wooden fences around the parking area of Flirtation Hill are a wonderful way to prevent those hoons and wildlife haters from driving onto the reserve.
Thank you Mudgee Council for listening to the electorate's concerns about this area. Thank you for spending the time and money on much needed preventative measures. I have resumed my walks around Flirtation Hill and no longer worry about what destruction I will find. The future is now looking bright for this local asset and the resident kangaroos.
