Remote bush camping areas in Lamington National Park now partially open with caution

This alert applies to the following parks:

Most remote bush camping areas in Lamington National Park are now open with caution. Bushwalkers and campers should use extreme caution and stay alert for hazards.

As a result of ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie, bushwalkers may experience significant navigational difficulties when trying to access remote bush camping destinations. High winds and rainfall have caused land slips, fallen trees and severe erosion, which may have concealed existing trails. Bushwalkers should factor in extra time when planning their trips. The average off-track walking time due to the difficulties associated with navigating around natural hazards/obstacles is estimated to be approximately 1 kilometer per hour and this needs to be taken into consideration accordingly.

Open areas include:

  • Echo Point bush camp;
  • Lost World Creek remote bush camp;
  • Lost World Saddle remote bush camp;
  • Mount Bithongabel bush camp;
  • Point Lookout remote bush camp;
  • Rat-a-tat remote bush camp;
  • Running Creek remote bush camp; and
  • Stinson remote bush camp

Camping permits for these areas can be obtained from Commercial tour operators and other permit or agreement holders can resume operations in open areas.

The following areas remain temporarily closed until declared safe:

  • Darlington remote bush camp; and
  • Illinbah bush camp

Observe all signage, barriers and directions from rangers, and do not enter closed areas.

Please note: Access to Green Mountains section is via Canungra along Lamington National Park Road ONLY. There is NO access along Duck Creek Road as it remains closed until further notice. Stay informed of road closures - check road conditions.

The next update will be provided by Tuesday 31 October 2017.
