Closed areas: Worimi Conservation Lands - no beach driving
Visitors are advised that beach driving between the Gan Gan 4WD access at Anna Bay to the Lavis Lane 4WD access at Williamtown is temporarily closed from Wednesday 6 July to Monday 11 July 2022. This closure is due to the current severe weather conditions making the beach front impassable for vehicles.
The Ganyamalbaa Campground will also be closed during this time.
The following areas are open:
- Lavis Lane entry
- Fern Bay entry
- Recreational Vehicle Area
Look out for soft sand, erosion, wash outs and drop offs. For safety avoid driving through sea water or large pools of water. Driving conditions can change rapidly. If in doubt turn around and back track on the route you have driven, to exit the park. Several vehicles on this beach have ended up in the ocean or swamped by water. Check conditions before arriving, and if in doubt save your visit for another day.
Staff will monitor conditions and reopen the beach for driving when the situation improves.
For more information please contact the National Parks office at Nelson Bay on 02 4984 8200, during business hours (Monday to Friday 8.30am – 4.30pm excluding public holidays). Penalties apply for non-compliance.
