Part closure of Murray River National Park
Parts of Murray River National Park will be closed from Monday 21 January 2019 to Friday 10 April 2020.
This includes the following campsites:
- Lock 4 Section, campsites 8 – 13 and Sawmill Campground
- Eckerts Creek Section, campsites 14 – 20 (all)
- Katarapko Creek Section, campsites 2 – 17
The reason for the closure is to construct the infrastructure for the Katarapko Floodplain Inundation Project. The project aims to improve floodplain and wetland health, better manage water cycles and improve the health and condition of the vegetation and ecology.
We will be installing new regulators across the floodplain which will allow us to inundate over 1,100 hectares. By flooding more regularly we will build resilience so our environment is more able to cope with changes to climate and drought.
