Closed parks: Aerial and ground 1080 baiting program

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting an aerial and ground baiting program in this park from Saturday 25 September to Saturday 9 October 2021.

The operation will involve the use of meat baits containing 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of foxes.

The program is designed to minimise the impact of foxes on wildlife, especially after the 2019-2020 bushfires, and to minimise the impact of foxes on neighbouring stock.

All baiting locations will be identified by signs. Domestic pets are not permitted in NSW national parks and reserves. Pets and working dogs may be affected (1080 is lethal to cats and dogs). Pets and working dogs must be restrained or muzzled in the vicinity and must not enter the baiting locations. In the event of accidental poisoning seek immediate veterinary assistance.

For more information call the NPWS Central West Area office at Dubbo on 02 6841 7100.

Other incidents: Visitation restrictions

There are a number of restrictions on visitation and access by the general public to Yathong, Nombinnie and Round Hill Nature Reserves and Nombinnie State Conservation Area. 

  • These reserves are not available for overnight camping or hiking. Visitation is restricted to day visits only.
  • Vehicle access is restricted to the public roads passing through or adjoining the reserves. Management trails are closed to vehicles. However you are welcome to walk on the trails.
  • Bird watchers are welcome to walk into the reserves and along management trails. However take care to make sure you can navigate back to your car - it is easy to get disorientated in mallee country.
  • Trips to Round Hill Nature Reserve by bird watching clubs can be done by prior arrangement.
  • There are a number of scientific research programs happening in the reserves and visitors should not disturb any field equipment if they come across it.
