Myall Lakes National Park camping reopens after flooding

Media release: 26 March 2013

Floodwaters within Myall Lakes National Park, east of Bulahdelah, have receded enabling previously closed camping areas to be open in time for Easter long weekend.

National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) Great Lakes Area Manager, Steve Smith said the good news is that the park’s popular lakeside visitor areas are free of inundation and all are expected to be open for the Easter long weekend and April school holidays.

“This includes the popular lakeside camping areas at White Tree Bay, Dees Corner and The Wells Camping areas which are due to open Wednesday the 27th March”, Mr Smith said

“People should be aware the flooding has caused damage to visitor infrastructure, including barbecues, rendering some inoperable”, he said.

“We apologise for any inconvenience and are making every effort to get facilities operational as quickly as possible.

“Bombah Point Road is opened to Myall Shores Holiday Park The Bombah Point Ferry is operating as normal’, he said.

“Stoney Creek Road (beyond the Grandis) remains closed due to collapse of a bridge.

“People intending to visit over Easter are advised to continue to check the website or ring the NPWS Great Lakes Area office on 65910300 for the latest information before they leave home”.
