Booderee National Park to reopen under Jervis Bay Territory visitation restrictions
Booderee National Park will reopen to most visitors on Thursday 24 December 2020 following a temporary closure from midnight on Monday 21 December 2020. However, in line with visitation restrictions to Jervis Bay Territory, visitors from the Northern Beaches, Greater Sydney, Central Coast and Wollongong Local Government Areas (LGA) will not be permitted to enter the Jervis Bay Territory, including the park.
Parks Australia is committed to taking appropriate precautionary measures and will be working closely with the Jervis Bay Territory, Traditional Owners from the Wreck Bay community and Australian Federal Police to protect the health of all concerned.
The park will continue to operate under COVID-safe health and safety protocols.
Booderee National Park remains closed for camping. Upon reopening, passes will be available for day use only. Park passes are currently free due to the fee waiver in place until 31 Dec 2020.
We regret the disappointment caused to visitors from currently restricted regions and we look forward to welcoming these visitors back to the park once the restrictions have been removed. Visitation restrictions to Jervis Bay Territory align with those of the ACT Government and we encourage visitors to remain informed by visiting the ACT Government’s latest COVID-19 updates.
We will continue to monitor the advice of medical authorities and the government, and work with Traditional Owners to ensure we continue to protect the local community, visitors and staff.
We thank our visitors and the community for their patience and understanding.
