Blue Mountains News
All Reserves, Lookouts, Walking Tracks and Campgrounds Closed in the Blue Mountains
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service have also closed all facilities in the Blue Mountains National Park.
While there is currently no immediate threat to the Blue Mountains, weather conditions are expected to deteriorate over the next few days, which can make bush fire activity more unpredictable. We have taken a safety first approach, and because of this we have decided to pre-emptively close all these spaces until Sunday, 22 December (inclusive).
There is currently a state-wide Total Fire Ban from Wednesday 18 December to Saturday 21 December (inclusive). The Fire Danger Rating is EXTREME today. Get more information on Fire Danger Ratings and Total Fire Bans.
