The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will be conducting an aerial pest control operation between 6am, Monday 30th January 2023 to 6pm Friday 3rd February 2023.
This program will target feral pigs, goats and deer as part of a state-wide conservation program and NPWS Bushfire Recovery Strategy. It aims to reduce the significant impact they have on native plants and animals, including threatened species. Other pest animals, including foxes, cats, rabbits and wild dogs, will be targeted if observed during the operation.
Warning closure signs will be placed at visitor entry points to areas of the park. Please do not enter closed areas during this time. Middlebrook Road will also be closed at the park boundary approximately 1.2km east of Middlebrook Quarry and no backcountry hiking is permitted from this point during the operation.
