Whitehaven Beach planned upgrade progress update - further tree debris removal

This alert applies to the following parks:

Pending favourable weather conditions, further tree debris removal at Southern Whitehaven Beach will commence 20 May until 26 May 2018 approximately. During this time visitors can expect increased noise and dust from the operation of large plant and equipment. Temporary areas of closure will be established throughout the work period and visitors are asked to observe all signage, barriers and directions from rangers and contractors and not enter closed areas. Commercial tour operators and other permit or agreement holders are not permitted to enter closed areas. The Whitehaven Beach camping area will be closed during the work. Access to the toilets, day-use area and walking tracks will remain open with possible minor changes to be advised on-site. We thank you for your patience during this necessary work.
