Safety alerts: Road closure and safety advice - 4WD only and horse float restrictions
Spirabo Forest Way is closed at the north-western end of Washpool National Park (from Scrub Road at Tenterfield) due to major damage from ongoing wet weather. Access to Four Bull Hut should be by Mount Spirabo Road from the New England Highway at Bolivia, or from Ten Mile Road in the south from Deepwater, through Capoompeta National Park. Please be aware all road conditions in these parks are degraded due to recent heavy rains and flooding, and access on all open roads is limited to 4WD only, and is currently unsuitable for the towing of horse floats.
Please be cautious and drive to road conditions. Do not attempt to access the reserves while towing a horse float.
