Flooding can occur anywhere at any time, particularly during and after severe weather and heavy rainfall.
Conditions may change at short notice, resulting in the closure of access roads, key visitor sites or entire parks.
Check the change of conditions listed under each individual park's web page for the latest advice before your visit.
The State Government acknowledges the vital importance of park areas for public recreation and tourism, and endeavours to assess, repair damage and safely open areas as soon as possible following storms and floods.
Reasons for closure may include:
Once recreation sites and tracks have been accessed, risks removed and necessary facilities repaired or rebuilt, sites are immediately re-opened to the public.
The Change of Conditions section on individual park pages is regularly updated to reflect the most current conditions. Check individual park pages for closure information.
