Booderee National Park re-opens after two-day closure
Booderee National Park re-opens from 11am on Friday, 14 August 2020, following a two-day closure. The park was closed as a precautionary measure as Parks Australia monitored the coronavirus situation in the region following news of two confirmed COVID-19 cases who had transited the Jervis Bay Territory (JBT).
Health advice is that the risk to the JBT community is very low, however the safety of the community, staff and visitors continues to be our highest priority and therefore Stage 1 restrictions will remain in place at Booderee National Park.
Stage 1 restrictions
Booderee National Park is open for day use only, between 7 am and 6 pm. Most beaches and walking tracks will be open, but some restrictions remain in place as a precaution due to COVID-19.
