We ask that people do not attempt to visit any of the areas that are closed, unless authorised, for their and their community's safety and protection. Compliance with the closures will be monitored.

Observe a minimum 1.5m distance from person to person at all times. We thank park users and the community for their support and cooperation during this time.
