Closed areas: Aerial pest control program in Kosciuszko National Park
Some areas of this park are closed due to an aerial pest control operation targeting deer and pigs. The program will occur between Monday 26 November and Friday 30 November 2018.
The closed areas are:
- Rennix walk
- Rainbow Lake walk
- Porcupine track
- Waterfall walk
- Ramshead Range - Merrits Creek east to Sawpit Creek
- Mount Guthrie east to Mount Paralyser
- Guthega Link Road east to Diggers Creek
- Big Boggy, The Cascades, Chimney Ridge, Charcoal Range
- Suggan Buggan Range Pinch River
- North-East of The Pilot to Ingegoodbee trail
This operation is part of a 3-year plan to reduce impacts by deer and pigs on high conservation areas, including the Montane Bogs and Fens Threatened Ecological Community. Other feral animals such as dogs, foxes and goats will also be shot during this program. Aerial shooting is not used to control horses in NSW national parks and therefore horses will not be targeted as part of this program.
This closure may be extended due to any condition and an extension will be posted as soon as possible. Penalties apply for non-compliance. For more information, call 02 6450 5600 or visit the NSW National Parks safety page for park safety guidelines.
