Booderee National Park

Monday 11 January 2021

Summer is a popular time for visitors to Booderee National Park and with many Australians holidaying here this year, we’re expecting visitor numbers to be even bigger.

Travellers need to keep up-to-date with where they can travel and which areas have been declared COVID-19 hotspots, as the COVID-19 situation in Australia is continually evolving.

The Jervis Bay Territory including Booderee National Park is subject to the Public Health Directions currently in place for the Australian Capital Territory. Please consult this list before travelling to Booderee National Park.

As part of our COVID-Safe operating plan, the park may close at short notice due to COVID-19 restrictions at Booderee National Park, to deliver a safe experience for visitors, park staff and the local community.

This means that the park may close for periods due to changing COVID-19 restrictions or when we’ve reached capacity.

Traffic management arrangements will be in place at the Entry Station precinct on Navel Collage Rd and Variable Message Sign (VMS) located on Pacific Hill will notify visitors when the park is open and closed.

Due to the large number of visitors and holidaymakers expected in the Jervis Bay region these holidays, there may be delays travelling into Booderee National Park and we ask everyone to please be patient and allow travel extra time when making plans.

We also encourage visitors to pre-book their park passes online and have their pass printed and ready to display before entering Booderee National Park.

We want everyone to have a safe and enjoyable experience at Booderee this summer and we ask that you review our safety messaging before visiting the park.

For general enquiries during the holidays, please contact our Visitor Centre staff via booderee.mail@awe.gov.au (please allow 24 hours for confirmation of receipt). You can also give us a call on 02 4443 0977, but please note that the Visitor Centre will remain closed during this time.
