A full list of reopening parks include:

  • Bald Rock National Park (sections reopening)
  • Boonoo Boonoo National Park (sections reopening)
  • Kwiambal National Park
  • Basket Swamp National Park
  • Kings Plain National Park
  • Mount MacKenzie Nature Reserve
  • Little Llangothlin Nature Reserve

NPWS Area Manager, Darren Pitt said some of these locations have been closed for some time and we are delighted to reopen them to the public to appreciate once more.

“Residents should be aware that the landscapes may look different to what they expect and signage within some national parks may be missing. Therefore, we ask visitors to remain on known walking tracks.”

“Our NPWS staff in the region are working tirelessly to ensure areas can be reopened as soon as possible.”

“The safety of our visitor is paramount and therefore in the coming weeks and months, we will continue to review our park closures and visitor safety”.

In the meantime, please abide by the existing park closure as they are there for your own safety,” Mr Pitt said.

People wanting to visit these, or any other national parks should check the National Parks and Wildlife Service website for the latest updates and safety advice.
