Closed areas: Gap Creek and Gap Creek Falls walking tracks closed
The three walking tracks from Gap Creek picnic area are currently closed due to storm damage and a planned major upgrade to Gap Creek Falls walking track. Work is currently underway and will continue until the end of October 2021.
Due to the dangerous nature of the work no visitors will be permitted. Alternative bushwalks are located:
- At Boarding House Dam picnic area
- Via Georges Road to Great North walk
- In adjacent State Forest areas.
The work consists of the removal of encroaching and fallen vegetation, installation of 300 new sandstone steps to the base of Gap Creek Waterfall, the repair of drainage controls and the removal of dangerous overhanging rocks.
The aim is to improve and make walking tracks safer for all visitors to Watagans National Park.
