Safety alerts: Poor conditions - Dry Creek and Mericumbene fire trails

Due to ongoing dry conditions, Merricumbene and Dry Creek fire trails currently have steep, loose and impassable sections when travelling from north to south (from Araluen Road on to Dry Creek fire trail, along Merricumbene fire trail and onto Bendethera fire trail).

We ask that visitors wanting to use these trails travel from south to north (from Bendethera fire trail along Merricumbene fire trail, to Dry Creek fire trail and on to Araluen Road). This will assist in reducing the further deterioration of these trails until repair works are undertaken.

Other planned events: Ongoing 1080 wild dog and fox baiting and pest programs underway

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service is conducting ongoing 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) wild dog and fox baiting and Canid Pest Ejector programs. The programs will run from 1 November 2019 to 28 February 2020. There will be 1080 baiting signs at the entrance to baiting areas. Don’t touch baits or ejector devices. Some baits may be buried. Penalties apply for non-compliance.

These programs are part of an integrated pest animal control strategy, which also includes trapping and shooting, with the aim of minimising the impacts of these pests on neighbouring stock.

Domestic pets are highly susceptible to 1080 poison. Dogs, cats and other pets and domestic animals are not permitted on NSW national parks, reserves and state conservation areas.

Safety alerts: Some fire trails not suitable for trailer access

Within Deua National Park some trails are not suitable for trailer access. National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) has had advisory signs in place for some time to encourage people towing 4WD trailers to avoid some of the steeper, harder-to-maintain trails in Deua National Park. However, due to ongoing damage to trails as a result of continued inappropriate use of 4WDs towing trailers on these signposted trails, NPWS is now prohibiting the use of trailers on the following trails in Deua National Park:

  • Dampier Mountain trail
  • Oulla Creek trail
  • Minuma Range trail
  • Merricumbene trail
  • Mongamula trail
  • Dry Creek trail

It is now an offence to tow trailers on these trails. The penalty for towing trailers on these trails is a $300 penalty infringement notice, or higher if the matter is taken to court. By keeping trailers away from these identified trails, you reduce the safety risk to yourself and others, reduce damage to the park environment and your assets and reduce park maintenance costs, a benefit to everyone. Trailer access to Bendethera is still available from Moruya via Little Sugarloaf Road and Bendethera trail. From Braidwood, this increases travel time by about 30 minutes to 1 hour. For more information, please contact NPWS Narooma on (02) 4476 0800.
