Closed areas: The Coast walking track - temporary closure

Sections of the Wyrrabalong Coast walk between Bateau Bay carpark and Crackneck lookout will be temporarily closed from Monday 26 April 2021 to mid-June 2021 due to maintenance works. In order to minimise disruption, detours will be in place around sections closed for construction via the local road network.

Track upgrades will improve visitor safety and experiences along the walking track.

The proposed scope of works includes:

  • Improvement and replacement of track surfaces and structures
  • Installation of drainage structures to manage erosion and stormwater flows entering the reserve
  • Installation of bicycle prevention structures to improve visitor safety and manage multi use of the visitor precinct.

Access to Crackneck lookout and the southern section of the coast track from Crackneck lookout carpark to Cromarty Hill are unaffected by the temporary closure.

For your safety, please follow park signage. Penalties apply for non-compliance.

For more information, contact the Central Coast area Lake Munmorah office on 02 4972 9000.
