Closed areas: Changes to Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park precinct closures
Many high visitation areas and facilities within Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park will be open from Friday 15 May 2020.
Some areas will remain closed until further notice to protect the health and safety of our visitors and staff, including:
- Bobbin Head Information Centre and Kalkari Discovery Centre
- The Station and Pavillion picnic shelters
- Bobbin Head playground
- Brooklyn Dam campsites
- The Basin track and The Basin campground and picnic area closed for maintenance until late July 2020
Berowra track, between Apple Tree Bay and the intersection of Mount Ku-ring-gai track, has now reopened. However visitors are advised to walk with caution as some sections of the track remain uneven.
The closure of toilets and other facilities will be decided on a case-by-case basis. Necessary site assessments will take place to consider 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. The maximum group size for an outdoor gathering is 10 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 staff or police.
If you're visiting the park, please bring a card to pay vehicle entry fees.
