Yanga National Park – Update

14/03/2022

Please see updated Yanga NP notice on the above link.

The high river has continued to impact on some of our visitor areas. Mamanga & Woolpress Bend Campgrounds has been closed for another 8 weeks as they are completely inundated. Also closed the picnic area at Yanga Woolshed as water has reached a section of the road in that site. The walking trail along the edge of Yanga Lake and the bird hide are closed (flooded) as well as the Lake Lookout while some construction work continues.

On a brighter note, The Willows campground is open, as is the popular historic Homestead & Yanga Woolshed.

Visitors are allowed to use the Woolshed car park for short term camping if they get caught out.

Please see updated notice attached.

The domestic firewood pile has re-opened. Field staff have been busy shifting lots of wood out for permit holders. I have attached the application form if you get enquiries for firewood permits. Please note this wood is only available to residents of the Balranald & Murray River local government areas. The river campgrounds are still flooded unfortunately but The Willows is open. As usual you can get up-to-date info on the website. https://www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au/visit-a-park/parks/yanga-national-park

Alternatively, if you prefer to camp on a river, if fully self-contained you might consider camping at the Kyalite reserves. There are 2 rivers to choose from Kyalite campground | NSW National Parks
