Most areas of Mount Barney National Park, including Mount Maroon, Mount Lindsay and Mount May, all summit routes and bush camping areas, are closed until Monday 16th September 2019 (inclusive).

This is for your safety during the severe drought conditions and increased fire danger period.

The following locations and tracks are open:

- Yellow Pinch lookout

All permits for closed areas are suspended for the duration of the closure. Apply for a camping permit refund online at Commercial tour operators and other permit or agreement holders are not permitted to enter closed areas.

Bushwalkers are reminded that all open fires are prohibited in Mount Barney National Park.

The volatile vegetation types, remote location and topography of Mount Barney National Park mean that this area is particularly vulnerable to severe wildfires in the high country in these conditions.

Rangers will review this closure on Monday 16th September and will reopen if conditions improve. Please observe all signage, barriers and directions from rangers, and do not enter closed areas.
