Safety alerts: Caving systems closed due to COVID-19 restrictions

All caving systems in this park are currently closed to access due to COVID-19 safety requirements. This includes the Bendethera, Wyanbene and Marble Arch caves.

These unique environments are mostly enclosed spaces with minimal airflow and high levels of humidity. By their nature, the important task of cleaning and sanitising related infrastructure can't be guaranteed to COVID-safe standards. Recreational caving in 'wild caves' inhibits social distancing and the standard precautions recommended to manage the risk of COVID-19 transmission. For these reasons, NPWS has developed a strategy for the reopening of caves which is based on an assessment of risk.

Options for allowing access to wild caves by speleological groups operating under a COVID Safety Plan are also being assessed. Approval for access to caves for critical maintenance and/or research purposes is considered on a case-by-case basis. Speleological groups and other registered organisations operating under a COVID Safety Plan may apply for conditional entry via email. Penalties apply for non-compliance.

For any further queries call the local office on 02 4476 0800, Monday to Friday, 9am to 4pm, or the Parks Info Line on 1300 072 757.

Safety alerts: River crossing to access Big Hole walking track - extreme caution advised

Safety alerts: Trailer access prohibited on some fire trails

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 the park. However, inappropriate use of signposted trails by 4WDs towing trailers is continuing, and is causing ongoing damage. Therefore, 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 benefit everyone by reducing:

  • the safety risk to yourself and others
  • damage to the park environment and your assets
  • park maintenance costs. 

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.
