Closed areas: Visitor areas closed
Many COVID-19 restrictions have now been lifted from visitor precincts and facilities. However, several tracks and trails will remain closed while upgrades and remediation works are completed. These closures include:
- Monday 22 June 2020 until further notice - Pogsons Trig trail will be closed while upgrade and remediation works are happening
- Twin Beaches campground and toilet block remain closed until further notice while upgrade works are conducted
- Tunks Ridge campground remains closed until further notice while staff assess safety concerns
The walking track between the end of Canoelands Ridge trail and Gentlemans Halt campground is now accessible. If you plan to visit, walk with caution as some sections of the track may be obstructed by fallen debris.
The closing of toilets and other facilities will be decided on a case-by-case basis, with necessary site assessments considering the management of health and safety risk to visitors and staff, and available resourcing to maintain facilities.
Access to sanitation products and running water cannot be guaranteed. We recommend bringing hand soap, hand wipes and toilet paper with you to maintain good hygiene as advised by the NSW Government.
Please remember to practice appropriate social distancing requirements and good hygiene. From Saturday 13 June 2020, the maximum group size for an outdoor gathering will be increasing from 10 to 20 people. Groups are still expected to maintain social distancing. If you arrive at a national park or other public space and it is too crowded to practice social distancing, it is your responsibility to leave the area. Do not wait to be instructed by NPWS or police.
