Cooloola Great Walk advanced booking restriction - 14 December until 31 January

This alert applies to the following parks:

As a result of high fire danger conditions typically experienced in the Cooloola Recreation Area over the warmer months, causing an unacceptable risk to the safety of walkers in remote areas, a seasonal restriction on forward bookings for the Cooloola Great Walk camp areas is implemented yearly from 14 December to 31 January. Restrictions on forward bookings reduces impacts of visitors if the walk is closed at short notice.

During the time when the walk and camp areas may be closed, rangers will regularly assess the fire danger conditions and open the walk (or sections of the walk) and associated camp areas whenever conditions allow.

For an updated status of the Cooloola Great Walk, check the Cooloola conditions report (updated regularly).
