Safety alerts: Wet weather road condition advice

Roads in Mimosa Rocks National Park may become wet and slippery following rainfall or thunderstorms.

It is important to plan your trip. Some recommended steps to take before visiting the park are:

  • Always check the NSW National Parks alerts page for up to date information on closed parks and safety alerts
  • Check the weather forecast before setting out and during your visit/stay. Consider altering or delay your trip if weather conditions change.
  • Tell family or friends where you are going and when you expect to return and let them know you have returned.
  • Know your vehicle limits before you travel. Consider getting NRMA roadside assistance before you go or call 13 11 22.
  • Take enough supplies for your visit/stay and take extra supplies to cover unexpected delays. This includes a first aid kit, warm clothing/blankets, food, water and medications.
  • Download apps: The Emergency Plus app will help you contact emergency services. Use the Fires Near Me app to check for bushfires in NSW before you go and during your trip, especially in summer. Please note these apps only work when you have mobile reception.
