Safety alerts: Hazardous back country conditions

There is a risk of avalanches in the higher areas of Kosciuszko National Park, particularly on Main Range and around Mount Kosciuszko.

Steeper, treeless slopes and the tops of ridges where overhanging cornices develop carry the greatest risk.

Snow stability varies with wind, temperature and the amount and patterns of snowfall. For example, when a hard, icy layer is followed by fresh snow.

Avalanches can occur at any time through winter and can be fatal. Back country travellers should check snow and weather conditions before departure and remain alert.

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.

Other planned events: 1080 wild dog control program

NPWS will be conducting a wild dog control program from October 2017 to October 2018 for wild dogs. The program will include trapping and the use of 1080  (sodium fluoroacetate) poison baits. The program will be undertaken in the Sassafras-Tolwong-Touga area of Morton National Park. Visitors are advised not to touch traps or baits. Please be aware that domestic pets could be affected as 1080 poison is lethal to dogs and cats. Pet owners and landowners must ensure their pets and working dogs do not enter baited reserves. For further information contact the NPWS Nowra area office on (02) 4428 6300 during business hours.
