This alert applies to the following parks:

Some walking tracks within the above mentioned protected areas have been affected by the recent heavy rainfall. Heavy rainfall has caused hazards such as rising creeks, flash flooding, and potential for landslides and rock falls. Bushwalkers may also encounter falling trees or recent fallen trees, due to soft saturated ground, and many of the creeks are experiencing rising and fast flowing water. The wet weather has also caused some of the walking tracks to become muddied and slippery in sections, making them difficult to traverse.

Please check Park Alerts before visiting the parks and beware when crossing creeks and rivers along the walking track network. QPWS rangers will continue to monitor conditions.

Your safety is our concern but your responsibility.

Observe all signage, barriers and directions from rangers, and do not enter closed areas.

Commercial tour operators and other permit or agreement holders are not permitted to enter closed areas.

Stay informed of closures and weather conditions:

  • Tune into local ABC radio stations for weather updates.
  • Check road conditions
  • Check weather warnings
  • Don’t enter flood waters - If it's flooded, forget it!
