Closed areas: Munyang Bridge closed (behind power station)

Snowy Hydro have advised that Munyang River Bridge behind Guthega Power Station at Munyang will be closed to all traffic including pedestrians indefinitely. As this bridge gives access to Disappointment Spur, this means that there is no access to Disappointment Spur from the Munyang end. Access is possible from the Whites River end but this requires then turning around and exiting the same way (via Whites River). Plans are underway to have the bridge replaced in 2017/2018. Penalties apply for non-compliance. For more information, please contact the Project Manager for repairs Mark Kofler from Snowy Hydro on 0418 297 255.

Safety alerts: Bingi Dreaming track

Bingi Dreaming track traverses openings to several Intermittently Closed and Open Coastal Lakes and Lagoons (ICOLLS). Openings of these lakes and lagoons are often unpredictable and can be quite dramatic. Visitors should be aware that although lakes are usually only open for short periods (weeks) they can be impassable when open. Coila Lake opening is at the southern extent of the Bingi Dreaming track. Please check if this lake is open prior to setting out; if the opening is impassable you will not be able to access the village of Tuross.

Recent stormy weather has resulted in damage to our beaches - please be careful. There may be temporary closures whilst works are completed. Closures will be signposted onsite; please follow instructions on any signs you see. For more information, contact NPWS Narooma area office on (02) 4476 0800.

Safety alerts: Some fire trails not suitable for trailer access

Within Deua National Park some trails are not suitable for trailer access. National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) has had advisory signs in place for some time to encourage people towing 4WD trailers to avoid some of the steeper, harder-to-maintain trails in Deua National Park. However, due to ongoing damage to trails as a result of continued inappropriate use of 4WDs towing trailers on these signposted trails, NPWS is now prohibiting the use of trailers on the following trails in Deua National Park:

  • Dampier Mountain trail
  • Oulla Creek trail
  • Minuma Range trail
  • Merricumbene trail
  • Mongamula trail
  • Dry Creek trail

It is now an offence to tow trailers on these trails. The penalty for towing trailers on these trails is a $300 penalty infringement notice, or higher if the matter is taken to court. By keeping trailers away from these identified trails, you reduce the safety risk to yourself and others, reduce damage to the park environment and your assets and reduce park maintenance costs, a benefit to everyone. Trailer access to Bendethera is still available from Moruya via Little Sugarloaf Road and Bendethera trail. From Braidwood, this increases travel time by about 30 minutes to 1 hour. For more information, please contact NPWS Narooma on (02) 4476 0800.
