To all concerned,
Camping and picnic areas in NSW State forests are temporarily closed from midday Friday 27 March 2020 until further notice as part of the public health precaution.
Forestry Corporation’s Tourism and Partnerships Manager, Louise Faulkner said this move followed the Government direction.
“State forests are popular tourist destinations but unfortunately, right now with the COVID-19 situation, groups of people congregating and using shared facilities are not possible.
“Our concern is for the health and safety of our visitors, staff and the wider community, and these measures are in response to that.
“Visitor areas including camping areas, picnic areas and public toilets in State forests are closed until further notice.
“People currently in these areas are asked to move on and anyone planning on heading to a State forest for camping and picnicking are asked to change their plans.
This applies to all State forests in NSW including native forests and pine plantations.
