The Border Ranges National Park reopened on Monday, June 20 after repairs and maintenance were finished.

It’s good news for locals and for visitors.

These areas are open in the park:

Sheepstation Creek and Forest Tops campgrounds

Red Cedar loop

Helmholtzia loop

Antarctic Beech lookout and picnic area

Pinnacle lookout walk

Blackbutt lookout and picnic area

Bar Mountain picnic area

Falcorostrum and Beech Glade walk

Border Loop lookout and picnic area

Remaining walking tracks are closed until further notice.

There is still no access from the eastern – Barkers Vale – end of the park because of ongoing landslip repair works.

Access to the Border Ranges National Park is via Lynchs Creek/Forest Road from Wiangaree only. This is because of ongoing landslip repair works between Bar Mountain picnic area and the eastern boundary gate.

Access to the Border Loop lookout and walk is from NSW only as the Lions Rd is closed at the Queensland border.

For more information call the NPWS Kyogle area office on 6632 0000.
