A park fire ban is in place for Bulagaranda Aboriginal Area (Mt Yarrowyck), Jacky Barkers (in Nowendoc National Park), Muluerindie (in Warrabah National Park), The Green Gully Track and Youdales day use and camping areas (in Oxley Wild Rivers National Park) and remains in effect unless otherwise extended or removed. During park fire ban periods, all campfire and solid fuel (wood, heat beads, charcoal, briquettes, hexamine) barbecues and stoves are prohibited.
