    Safety messages

    However you discover NSW national parks and reserves, we want you to have a safe and enjoyable experience. Our park and reserve systems contrast greatly so you need to be aware of the risks and take responsibility for your own safety and the safety of those in your care.

    Swimming in Georges River is not advised because the submerged banks of the river are steep and uneven. Also, a number of shark attacks have been recorded in the area.
