Safety alerts: Changed access to Border Ranges National Park

Access to Border Ranges National Park is via Lynchs Creek/Forest Road from Winagaree only. This is due to ongoing land slip repair works between Bar Mountain picnic area and the eastern boundary gate. As a result there is no direct access from the Murwillumbah/Barkers Vale direction.

Note access to Border Loop lookout and walk is from NSW only as the Lions Road is closed at the QLD border.

For more information call the NPWS Kyogle area office on 02 6632 0000.
