IMPORTANT NOTICE: Camping and beach driving at the Worimi Conservation Lands is temporarily closed
People are advised that camping at the Worimi Conservation Lands remains temporarily closed due in line with government COVID-19 directives. All visitors with camping bookings impacted by the closures will be contacted to arrange full refunds.
Adverse weather extends beach driving closure
The beach driving closure at the Worimi Conservation Lands has also been extended until further notice due to severe weather and sea conditions predicted for this weekend.
NPWS Area Manager Andrew Bond said the beaches were due to reopen to the public this weekend in line with state government easing of COVID-19 restrictions on social distancing and non-essential travel.
“We understand this extension of the closure is disappointing for people however visitor safety is the priority,” said Mr Bond.
“Closure signs will be installed at beach entrances and we will continue to monitor the weather conditions to determine when the beach can safely be reopened for vehicles,” said Mr Bond.
