Rain enables Myall Lakes National Park to reopen

After being temporarily closed due to fire risk Myall Lakes National Park has reopened following recent widespread rainfall.

Paperbark Forest, Myall Lakes National Park

Campgrounds, day use areas, beaches and roads in the National Park are now accessible by the public.

Rainfall in the area since Thursday (16th Jan) has moderately alleviated the dry conditions in the national park reducing the immediate risk of bush fire.

All NPWS campgrounds, day use areas, 4WD beaches and roads in Myall Lakes National Park have re-opened.

NPWS managed roads, including Mungo Brush road and Violet Hill road, are now accessible.

Waterways are open and boat-based access to land is now permitted.

Tracks and trails located in Myall Lakes National Park are open except for:

  • the Mining Road fire trail
  • the Mungo walking track.

Despite the rain a park fire-ban remains in place.

During park fire ban periods, all campfire and solid fuel (wood, heat beads, charcoal, briquettes, hexamine) barbecues and stoves are prohibited. Fireworks are not permitted in the park.
