Safety alerts: Rain and flooding

Heavy rains have damaged many tracks and roads in the park and rain is expected to continue. Canyons and creek crossings are flooded. The soil water table is saturated. Therefore water levels could rise to dangerous levels at short notice. Some crossings are already impassable due to flood debris and infrastructure damage. Natural surface roads could be slippery or impassable. Landslips, treefall and rockfall are more likely in these conditions.

Visitors are advised to plan accordingly and avoid flooded or unstable areas. Visitors may have to navigate muddy conditions, unclear paths, fallen trees, flood debris and washouts. Visitors should not cross creeks or rivers when they are flooded or water is over stepping stones.

Six Foot track is:

  • Open: between the Explorers Tree at Katoomba and Guyvers Bridge (just west of Megalong Road).
  • Closed: between Guyvers Bridge to the Jenolan Caves (including Cox’s River, Alum River and Black Range campgrounds). This is due to the dangerous conditions caused by the recent rainfall event and bushfire impacts causing land slips, track erosion and tree fall. Crown Lands contractors are busy working towards opening the closed sections of track before the end of the February.
