Temporary closure of campsites due to approaching fire: Kutini-Payamu (Iron Range) National Park (CYPAL)

Applies until 19 September 2019.

This alert applies to the following parks:

All campsites within the rainforest section of Kutini-Payamu (Iron Range) National Park may be affected by fire activity in coming days. For this reason Rainforest, Cooks Hut and Gordon Creek campsites will be closed from Thursday 12 September to Thursday 19 September 2019. The rainforest within the park was severely impacted by cyclone activity earlier this year and as such there is a significant amount of debris that has now carried the fire through rainforest that would not normally burn. Those that may experience breathing difficulties in heavy smoke should avoid this area. Chili Beach should remain unaffected and camping here will remain open although the road may at times be affected by smoke so please drive to conditions.
