Safety alerts: Area closed for Aerial Shooting Pest Control Operation

The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will be conducting an Aerial Pest Control Operation between Thursday 8th June 2023 and Friday 9th June 2023 in Werakata National Park and Werakata State Conservation Area.

This program will primarily target deer as part of a state-wide conservation program and to address biosecurity obligations. It aims to reduce the significant impact deer have on threatened species and to reduce the economic impacts of deer on neighbouring vineyards.

Warning closure signs will be placed at authorised visitor entry points to areas of the park. Please do not enter closed areas during this time.

Penalties apply for non-compliance. For more information, contact the Lower Hunter Area office on (02) 4946 4100
