  • The close physical interactions required for recreational caving in 'wild caves' mean that the standard precautions recommended to manage the risk of COVID-19 transmission can't be applied.
  • NPWS will reopen Wyanbene Caves when a risk assessment deems it safe. Options for allowing access to wild caves under a COVID Safety Plan are also being assessed.
  • Approval for access to caves for critical maintenance and/or research purposes is considered on a case-by-case basis.

Safety alerts: Some fire trails not suitable for trailer access
Within Deua National Park some trails are not suitable for trailer access. National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) has had advisory signs in place for some time to encourage people towing 4WD trailers to avoid some of the steeper, harder-to-maintain trails in Deua National Park. However, due to ongoing damage to trails as a result of continued inappropriate use of 4WDs towing trailers on these signposted trails, NPWS is now prohibiting the use of trailers on the following trails in Deua National Park:
  • Dampier Mountain trail
  • Oulla Creek trail
  • Minuma Range trail
  • Merricumbene trail
  • Mongamula trail
  • Dry Creek trail
It is now an offence to tow trailers on these trails. The penalty for towing trailers on these trails is a $300 penalty infringement notice, or higher if the matter is taken to court. By keeping trailers away from these identified trails, you reduce the safety risk to yourself and others, reduce damage to the park environment and your assets and reduce park maintenance costs, a benefit to everyone. Trailer access to Bendethera is still available from Moruya via Little Sugarloaf Road and Bendethera trail. From Braidwood, this increases travel time by about 30 minutes to 1 hour. For more information, please contact NPWS Narooma on (02) 4476 0800.

Please note:
  • These unique environments are mostly enclosed places with minimal airflow and high levels of humidity. They contain multiple surfaces where dust and other airborne matter can easily settle. By their nature, they also make the important task of cleaning and sanitising related infrastructure (such as handrails) much more difficult.
  • The close physical interactions that are required for recreational caving (in 'wild caves') means that the application of the standard precautions recommended to manage the risk of COVID-19 transmission cannot be applied.
  • For these reasons, NPWS developed a strategy for the reopening of caves which was based on an assessment of risk. 
  • Options for allowing access to wild caves by speleological groups operating under a COVID Safety Plan are also being assessed.
  • Approval for access to caves for critical maintenance and/or research purposes is considered on a case-by-case basis.

Closed areas: Bungonia Caves closed
All caves in Bungonia National Park and Bungonia State Conservation Area are closed due to COVID-19 restrictions. Speleological groups and other registered organisations operating under a COVID Safety Plan may apply for conditional entry via email.  
Penalties apply for non-compliance. For more information contact the Fitzroy Falls Visitor Centre on 02 4887 7270.
Please note:
  • These unique environments are mostly enclosed places with minimal airflow and high levels of humidity. They contain multiple surfaces where dust and other airborne matter can easily settle. By their nature, they also make the important task of cleaning and sanitising related infrastructure (such as handrails) much more difficult.
  • The close physical interactions that are required for recreational caving (in 'wild caves') means that the application of the standard precautions recommended to manage the risk of COVID-19 transmission cannot be applied.
  • For these reasons, NPWS developed a strategy for the reopening of caves which was based on an assessment of risk. 
  • Options for allowing access to wild caves by speleological groups operating under a COVID Safety Plan are also being assessed.
  • Approval for access to caves for critical maintenance and/or research purposes is considered on a case-by-case basis.

Closed areas: Spring Creek Canyon closed due to rockfalls
Spring Creek Canyon in Bungonia State Conservation Area is closed due to rockfalls in the area.
Penalties apply for non-compliance. For more information, contact the local NPWS office.
