Wyrrabalong National Park

Wyrrabalong National park on the NSW Central Coast is divided into two main sections. The northern section sits between the South Pacific Ocean and Tuggerah Lake (with the Central Coast Hwy cutting up the middle) south of Norah Head. The south section covers a coastal strip from Forresters Beach to Bateau Bay. The park is rich with great views, sandy beaches and the last significant coastal rainforest in the area. A great place for walking, swimming, fishing and relaxing.

There are alerts raised for Wyrrabalong National Park as at Tue, 05 Dec 2023 13:46:24 +1100
Other planned events: Safety Fence Realignment Works
A geotechnical assessment of the cliffs adjacent to Bateau Bay Picnic Area was undertaken in accordance with the National Parks and Wildlife Landslide and Landslip Policy. This assessment was summarised in a report which recommended a section of the fence be realigned to ensure visitor safety.
Minor construction activities will be undertaken in the area, please follow directions from staff onsite to ensure these works are undertaken as safely as possible.
For more information, contact the local NPWS office.

Safety alerts: 1080 Ground Baiting Program
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting a ground baiting program in Wyrrabalong National Park from the 14th of November 2023 to the 5th of December 2023.
The operation will use 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of foxes.
The program is designed to minimise predator impacts on wildlife, especially threatened species.
Signs will be placed at the entry to the baiting location. Domestic pets are not permitted in NSW National Parks managed lands. Pets and working dogs may be affected (1080 is lethal to cats and dogs). Pets and working dogs must be restrained or muzzled in the vicinity and must not enter the baiting location. In the event of accidental poisoning seek immediate veterinary assistance.
Please contact the local Munmorah NPWS area office for more information on 02 4972 9000.
