Other planned events: 1080 fox and wild dog baiting program underway

NSW National Parks are conducting a 1080 fox and wild dog baiting program in the Kangaroo Valley, Budgong and Illaroo areas for the protection of the Endangered brush-tailed rock-wallaby. The baiting is conducted on various private properties, council reserves, NPWS estate, Water NSW estate and vacant Crown land. All properties with 1080 baiting under this program are permanently baited throughout the year. These properties will have poison on them from today through to 31 December 2017. The baiting will be conducted using both 1080 buried baits and 1080 (above ground) ejector devices at the bait station locations. Do not touch any bait or ejector devices. All properties being baited are sign posted with the baiting dates and an indication of which baiting methods are being used on each property. Dog owners are reminded to ensure their dogs do not wander as dogs are highly susceptible to 1080 poisoning. A map indicating the approximate location of each bait station is being hosted on the Friends of the Brush-tailed Rock-wallaby website. For further information please contact Melinda Norton at the OEH Highlands area office, Fitzroy Falls on (02) 4887 8244.

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.
