  • The Yaouk/Adaminaby area from Lone Pine trail to Lake Eucumbene

  • Snowy Plain
  • Kalkite Mountain

There will be signs around the baited areas to alert the public about the 1080 baiting in these locations.

These programs are part of an integrated pest animal control strategy, which also includes trapping and shooting, with the aim of minimising the impacts of these pests on neighbouring stock.

Baiting programs will be conducted in the Adaminaby/Yaouk, Snowy Plain, Thredbo/Ingebyra, Dalgety/Paupong, East Monaro/Far South Coast and Corrowong/Tombong/Merriangah wild dog plan areas.

Domestic pets are highly susceptible to 1080 poison. Dogs, cats and other pets and domestic animals are not permitted on NSW national parks, reserves and state conservation areas.

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.
