National Park closed due to bushfire danger
Brisbane Water National Park, which surrounds Pearl Beach and Patonga, was closed last week until Monday, December 23 because of the heatwave and dangerous bushfire conditions.
NSW Rural Fire Service issued emergency alerts for the Park and called total fire bans during the hot, dry weather while the Gospers Mountain bushfire continued to threaten the western boundary of the lower Central Coast and blanket the area in smoke.
Entry to the park at Patonga was locked and the park closure and total fire bans affected 13 locations in the park, including the Great North Walk, Patonga to Pearl Beach walking track, Warrah Trig lookout, Warrah Trig cycling loop and Wondabyne to Patonga walking track.
