Safety alerts: Roads in wet weather advice

Roads in Mimosa Rocks National Park may become wet and slippery following rainfall or thunderstorms. Some sections of these roads may become temporarily impassable to 2WD vehicles without warning due to rain, thunderstorms, recent roadworks or vehicle damage.

  • All other dirt roads within the park

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.

If conditions deteriorate roads within the park (including those accessing visitor areas and camping grounds) may be closed to traffic at short notice.

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.
