Flood affected areas

The State Government acknowledges the vital importance of park areas for public recreation and tourism, and endeavours to assess, repair damage and safely open areas as soon as possible following storms and floods.

Reasons for closure may include:

  • Hazardous trees, limbs and fallen timber.
  • Damaged tracks, bridges, signs, recreation sites and other facilities.
  • Unstable soils or stream crossings.

Once recreation sites and tracks have been accessed, risks removed and necessary facilities repaired or rebuilt, sites are immediately re-opened to the public.

The Change of Conditions section on individual park pages is regularly updated to reflect the most current conditions. Check individual park pages for closure information.
