Other planned events: Construction works - Kylies Beach 4x4 access

Works are currently underway at Kylies Beach campground to construct an alternative 4x4 beach access point to the northern end of Kylies Beach.

Access to the beach carpark will be restricted while these works are completed. 

This project will provide a safer access point to the northern end of Kylies Beach following damage sustained to the original access in consecutive flood events in 2021 and 2022. 

The project has been joint funded by NPWS and MidCoast Council and will be undertaken by the NSW Soil Conservation Service. 

For more information please contact NPWS Port Macquarie on 6588 5555.
