Other planned events: Increased visitation
Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park is a popular location and will close at short notice if needed to ensure visitation levels do not exceed safe capacity required by COVID social distancing guidelines.
Many COVID-19 restrictions have now been lifted from visitor precincts and facilities in Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park.
We encourage you to:
- Plan your visit outside of peak periods of 10am to 2pm
- Be prepared to move on if it's no longer possible for you to maintain a COVID-safe distance from other visitors. It is your responsibility to leave the area. Do not wait to be instructed by NPWS or police.
From Monday 29 March 2021, the maximum group size for an outdoor gathering will be increased from 50 people to 200 people, including children. Group size restrictions in National Parks still apply. Groups are still expected to maintain social distancing and good hygiene.
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.
