Other planned events: Notice of ongoing 1080 program in Oolambeyan NP

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting an ongoing ground baiting program from 14 February 2024 to 13 August 2024. The operation will use 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of feral foxes.

The program will take place in Oolambeyan National Park.

The program is designed to minimise predator impacts on wildlife, especially threatened species, and to minimise impact of foxes on neighbouring stock.

Signs will be placed at the entry to the baiting location. Domestic pets are not permitted in NSW National Parks managed lands. Pets and working dogs may be affected (1080 is lethal to cats and dogs). Pets and working dogs must be restrained or muzzled in the vicinity and must not enter the baiting location. In the event of accidental poisoning seek immediate veterinary assistance.

Please contact the local Griffith NPWS area office for more information on (02) 6966 8100.

Closed areas: Moama 5 Mile - Area Closed due to works at boat ramp and adjacent tiers

The 5-Mile, while works take place during repair of the tiered areas caused by the recent floods, will be partially closed. These works will take place over an 8 week period.

An area at the top of the tiers at carpark level, including the lower Bbq area will have an exclusion fence set up to minimise damage to vehicles, boats and injury to visitors. This excluded area may temporarily involve the closure of access to the boat ramp, which will otherwise remain open.

The rest of the Visitor area will remain open. All the toilets, the carpark, access to the mountain bike trails and the Riverside walk to the Dungula lookout will still be available for public use.

The works are expected to begin on the 1st May and be finished by the end of June 2024.

Safety alerts: Blue-Green Algae Advice

There is currently an AMBER alert for potentially toxic blue-green algae on Yanga Lake. At amber alert levels blue-green algae may be multiplying in numbers. The water may have a green tinge and musty or organic odour. The water should be considered as unsuitable for potable use and alternative supplies or prior treatment of raw water for domestic purposes should be considered. The water may also be unsuitable for stock watering. The water remains suitable for recreational use, however algal concentrations can change rapidly. Water users should use caution and avoid water where signs of blue-green algae present.
