Closures and notices

From time to time forests, or sections of forests, need to be closed to the public for a variety of reasons including fire and flood, maintenance, events or forest operations.

A list of closures, bookings and notifications have been provided here to assist potential forests visitors. This list relates to forests with recreation areas only and does not cover forests or parts of forests closed for other operational reasons like harvesting.

Please note: Forest conditions can change rapidly and closures may occur suddenly. Information cannot always be immediately reflected on our website. Always pay attention to signs in the forest or instructions from staff.
