Changes To Camping In National Parks

Post date: Jun 3, 2020 3:37:37 AM

Those set to go camping in Local National Parks will be in for a major change, with the announcement that all National Parks will require a booking for Camping from this month; however, the campground at Ganguddy Dunns Swamp is now already booked out.

Environment Minister, Matt Kean, says that more than 255 campgrounds across the State’s national parks will be open, but every open campground will be bookable online or by phone.

This will also include the campground at Coolah Tops, with the Coorongooba campground at Glen Davis closed until later in the year.

Mr Kean said that campers should come well prepared and practice good hygiene in shared facilities and be aware that physical distancing as per Government health advice must be adhered to.

National Parks has advised us that campers can no longer turn up and pay when they get there, and Rangers will also be patrolling on the long weekend, to ensuring people have registered online.

Those without a valid booking will be asked to move on from camping.

We understand day visitation will still be allowed.
