Closed areas: Parts of Budderoo National Park Closed for ground pest control operation

The below areas of Budderoo National Park are closed for overnight ground shooting pest operations between Monday 20 March and Friday 30 June 2023.

Specifically, these areas will be closed overnight (from 6pm to 9am) on the Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings (outside of school and public holidays) during these dates.

Do not enter the closed areas during these times. Penalties apply for non-compliance.


The areas of Budderoo NP being closed are:

-The powerlines service trail between Jamberoo Mountain Road and Cloonty Rd in Carrington Falls

-The Douglas Creek trail between Cloonty road and Jamberoo Mountain Road

-The section of park along the eastern side of Knights Hill Road


This shooting is part of a multi-park pest control program which is targeting deer but other pest animals (including pigs, goats, foxes and feral cats) will also be targeted if observed during the operation. The program aims to reduce the significant impact these pest animals have on native plants and animals including threatened species. Whilst shooting may not be conducted on all of these nights, the park is closed to allow works to be conducted at short notice during favourable weather conditions.


Park closure warning signs will be erected at entrances to the shooting areas.

Other planned events: 1080 fox ground baiting program

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service is conducting a continual and ongoing 1080 ground baiting program for the control of foxes from Tuesday 14 March to Monday 31 July 2023 to reduce the impacts on threatened species.

The operation will target foxes in the Carrington Falls, Budderoo Plateau, Knights Hill and Barren Grounds areas. Baits have been placed on NPWS estate, private property and Crown road reserves with permissions.

There are 1080 baiting signs at the entrance to baiting areas. Don’t touch baits or ejector devices. Some baits may be buried.

1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) is lethal to pets (including domestic dogs and cats) and working dogs. In the event of accidental poisoning, seek immediate veterinary assistance. Domestic pets, including dogs and cats, are not permitted in national parks or reserves. Restrain working and assistance dogs to ensure they don’t enter the baiting areas.

Penalties apply for non-compliance. For more information, contact Melinda Norton at the NPWS Fitzroy Falls area office on 02 4887 8244 or send an email.
