Closed areas: Barrington Trail closed south of the Barrington Tops Forest Rd for essential road works

Barrington Trail, south of the Barrington Tops Forest (Scone) Rd, will be closed to vehicles, motorbikes and bicycles from 23 January to 6 April 2023 to allow for essential road works to be undertaken.

This affects vehicle access to both Little Murray and Junction Pools Campgrounds, and hence they will also be closed during this period

The trail will re-open for the Easter weekend and then NPWS will close it again until the end of April to allow the works to be completed - re-opening is of course weather dependant.

Bushwalkers can still access the area during this time, however they will need to be mindful that trucks and heavy equipment are operating on the Barrington Trail.

Penalties apply for non-compliance. For further information, please call the Gloucester Office on 6538 5300 or Scone Office on 6540 2300.
