Other planned events: Notice of 1080 Pest management program

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting an ongoing aerial baiting program in Gundabooka National Park and State Conservation Area from Monday 2 May 2022 to Friday 3 June 2022.

The operation will use 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of wild dogs and foxes.

The program is designed to minimise predator impacts on wildlife, especially threatened species, and to minimise the impact of wild dogs on neighbouring stock.

Signs will be placed at the entry to the baiting location. Domestic pets are not permitted in NSW National Parks managed lands. 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 location. In the event of accidental poisoning seek immediate veterinary assistance.

Please contact the local Bourke NPWS area office for more information on (02) 6830 0200.

Affects 2 parks and 12 locations nearby. Show list

Closed parks: Park closed for fire trail works

From Monday 25 April 2022, Goobang National Park will be closed for up to 8 weeks (subject to wet weather conditions delaying the project). This is so NPWS staff and experienced plant operators can undertake essential fire trail upgrades, made possible through the RFS Fire Access Fire Trail (FAFT) program.

During this time, the following areas will be closed:

  • Wanda Wandong campground
  • Greenbah campground 
  • All the walking tracks in those campground areas

Heavy plant will be working on all strategic fire trails within the park. The park is closed for safety reasons, as heavy plant cannot safely operate on complex trail work with visitors and other vehicles using the same space.

Penalties apply for non-compliance. For more information, contact the NPWS Central West area office at Bathurst on 02 6332 7640.
