Other planned events: Summer road closures
Royal National Park can be extremely busy in summer. Some parts of the park may be closed at short notice when carparks are full or for other public safety reasons.
Areas likely to be affected by carpark closures or access restrictions when precincts reach capacity are:
- Wattamolla picnic area and Wattamolla Road
- Garawarra Farm carpark and Garawarra Farm Road (Figure 8 Pools carpark)
- Bonnie Vale picnic area
- Audley precinct
Transport for NSW has closed Garie Road at the intersection with Sir Bertram Stevens Drive, due to a landslide. Vehicles and pedestrians will not be able to use any part of Garie Road to access any part of Royal National Park. A reopening date for this road is not currently known, but is expected to be in mid to late 2023.
Penalties apply for non-compliance. For more information, contact the Royal National Park Visitor Centre on 02 9542 0648.
