Closed areas: Araluen Road closure affecting access to Deua River campgrounds

Remediation roadworks have completed on sections of Araluen Road previously closed to traffic in the Eurobodalla Shire. However, Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council have identified sections of Araluen Road that require urgent slope stabilisation works and will be implementing temporary daytime closures on the western section of Araluen Road over the next few months. This may impact access to these campgrounds along Deua River in Deua National Park from the western approach (via Braidwood/Majors Creek/Araluen):

  • Bakers Flat Campground
  • Deua River Campground
  • Dry Creek Campground

 

For more information and updates regarding closures on Araluen Road, please visit the QPRC website Araluen Road flood damage repairs - Queanbeyan-Palerang (nsw.gov.au) or call on 1300 735 025.

Safety alerts: Trailer access prohibited on some fire trails

Within Deua National Park some trails are not suitable for trailer access. National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) has had advisory signs in place for some time to encourage people towing 4WD trailers to avoid some of the steeper, harder-to-maintain trails in the park. However, inappropriate use of signposted trails by 4WDs towing trailers is continuing, and is causing ongoing damage. Therefore, NPWS is now prohibiting the use of trailers on the following trails in Deua National Park:

  • Dampier Mountain trail
  • Oulla Creek trail
  • Minuma Range trail
  • Merricumbene trail
  • Mongamula trail
  • Dry Creek trail

It is now an offence to tow trailers on these trails. The penalty for towing trailers on these trails is a $300 penalty infringement notice, or higher if the matter is taken to court. 

By keeping trailers away from these identified trails, you benefit everyone by reducing:

  • the safety risk to yourself and others
  • damage to the park environment and your assets
  • park maintenance costs. 

Trailer access to Bendethera is still available from Moruya via Little Sugarloaf Road and Bendethera trail. From Braidwood, this increases travel time by about 30 minutes to 1 hour.

For more information, please contact NPWS Narooma on 02 4476 0800.
