IMPORTANT NOTICE FROM NPWS: Due to the extreme fire conditions across much of NSW, most national parks and reserves from the Queensland border to Victoria are closed. This means no public access at all and includes tracks, trails, campgrounds and picnic areas. A total fire ban remains in place for all NSW national parks due to extreme fire danger. Park closures in all areas across NSW will be reviewed on a daily basis and parks will only reopen when considered safe. More information at
