Safety alerts: New England Wilderness Walk - Not suitable during rain or high river levels
The Bellinger River catchment has experienced above average rainfall over the past few months and river levels can rise quickly with rain. River crossings on the Wilderness Walk become extremely dangerous when river levels rise and walkers may become stranded.
Do not do the walk during periods of high river levels or forecast rainfall.
Check the Bureau of Meteorology for river levels and rainfall before setting off.
For more information, contact the NPWS Coffs Cast office on phone 66520900.
