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, or events.

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: Some closures may occur suddenly. Please follow all signage in the forest.
