Mark Oliphant Conservation Park

Published: 19 January 2022

In the interests of public safety, the car park area at Gate 1, off Scott Creek Road, is temporarily closed while construction works to expand the car park take place from the beginning of December 2021 to mid-April 2022.

Alternative parking for Mark Oliphant Conservation Park is limited, so we apologise in advance for any inconvenience this temporary closure may cause.

Nearby, trail and picnic shelter upgrades will be also be underway which may cause some limited disruptions to visitors.

For your own safety and the safety of other park visitors, and to avoid impacting our neighbours, we ask that during this temporary closure:

  • park visitors do not park along Scott Creek Road or on private property, including at neighbouring private businesses
  • park visitors do not park across gate entrances elsewhere in the park. These entrances need to be clear to allow for emergency access. Fines apply for blocking these access points.

More details about the project can be found at the Community Access to National Parks webpage.
