This alert applies to the following parks:

As a result of high fire danger conditions experienced over the warmer months, a seasonal restriction on bookings for Cooloola Great Walk and Cooloola Wilderness Trail is implemented yearly from 1 November to 31 January. High fire danger conditions pose an unacceptable risk to the safety of walkers in remote areas and some walking tracks may be closed at short notice.

Restrictions on forward bookings are limited to fourteen days in advance only and intended to reduce any impact on visitors if any walking tracks are 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 sites whenever conditions allow.

To apply for a refund, a booking change, or system credit, log on to your account at www.qld.gov.au/camping
