Other planned events: Notice of ongoing 1080 aerial and ground baiting

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting ongoing aerial and ground baiting programs in Yathong Nature Reserve from Monday 25 July to Friday 5 August 2022.

This activity forms part of the Central West Area's strategic control program for the management of fox impacts to biodiversity values of the nature reserve and biosecurity values of the surrounding agricultural landscape.

The operation will use 1080 (sodium monofluoroacetate) poison meat baits for the control of foxes. The program is designed to minimise predator impacts on wildlife, especially threatened species.

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 NPWS Central West Area office at Bathurst for more information on 02 6332 7640.

Other incidents: Visitation restrictions

There are a number of restrictions on visitation and access by the general public to Yathong, Nombinnie and Round Hill Nature Reserves and Nombinnie State Conservation Area. 

  • These reserves are not available for overnight camping or hiking. Visitation is restricted to day visits only.
  • Vehicle access is restricted to the public roads passing through or adjoining the reserves. Management trails are closed to vehicles. However you are welcome to walk on the trails.
  • Bird watchers are welcome to walk into the reserves and along management trails. However take care to make sure you can navigate back to your car - it is easy to get disorientated in mallee country.
  • Trips to Round Hill Nature Reserve by bird watching clubs can be done by prior arrangement.
  • There are a number of scientific research programs happening in the reserves and visitors should not disturb any field equipment if they come across it.
