NPWS Announcement -

The Hickson Street gliding pad in Glenrock State Conservation Area (SCA) will be temporarily closed to the public to support measures to protect the community from spread of COVID-19. The closure, as part of the state’s COVID-19 response, will take effect from Thursday 9th April from 10am and be reassessed following the Easter long weekend.

The move is in line with state-wide closures of some high-use day visitor areas in national parks across NSW and means that access to the Hickson Street Gliding Pad will not be permitted. Access to Burwood Beach via the Hickson Street Walking Track will still be permitted while visitors follow social distancing measures. The closure is in response to tighter Australian and NSW Government health directives on social distancing and non-essential travel to prevent the transmission of COVID-19 in the wider community, and to support social distancing to protect against the spread of COVID-19.

Dudley Beach Carpark and Scout Camp Road remain closed until further notice. Other areas in Glenrock SCA are currently open however Police and NPWS patrols in the area will continue to monitor park activity. Further closures may be required.

Before walking out your door to exercise in a national park, people are reminded to check alerts for NSW national parks closures and changes to access – things are changing regularly. For more information visit: www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au/alerts

This temporary closure is in the interests of public health and safety
