    Safety messages

    However you discover NSW national parks and reserves, we want you to have a safe and enjoyable experience. Our park and reserve systems contrast greatly so you need to be aware of the risks and take responsibility for your own safety and the safety of those in your care.

    Visitors should be aware of the risks associated with bushfires in the Australian bush, particularly during summer. In the event of a bushfire, the safest place is likely to be on the beach. Fire control crews may be some distance away, and vehicles caught on narrow roads in the forest, by fallen trees or lack of visibility due to smoke, only make their job harder.

    Beach safety

    • Strong rips and currents may be present the beaches and estuaries within Mimosa Rocks National Park. Take care in the water and please supervise children at all times.
    • There are many patrolled beaches nearby, please see Surf Life Saving Australia
    • For more information on staying safe at the beach, see our beach safety page.

    Mobile safety

    Dial Triple Zero (000) in an emergency. Download the Emergency + app before you visit, it helps emergency services locate you using your smartphone's GPS. Please note there is limited mobile phone reception in this park and you’ll need mobile reception to call Triple Zero (000).

    Pets and domestic animals (other than certified assistance animals) are not permitted. Find out which regional parks allow dog walking and see the OEH pets in parks policy for more information.
