COVID-19 – Lake Wallace Camping

Source: Lithgow City Council
Posted: 9 Apr 2020
Yesterday, the Prime Minister reinforced the message for everyone to stay at home for Easter to maintain the effort against the COVID-19 pandemic. Lake Wallace remains closed for camping although the Public Health Order has been updated.

Lake Wallace campground was closed for overnight camping effective from 26 March 2020. Overnight stays and camping at any other sites is also not permitted. There are very limited exceptions to the closure order.

Under the amendments to the Public Health Order, caravan parks and campgrounds are to be closed except to accommodate:

  • permanent residents of the caravan park or camping ground
  • overnight travellers
  • persons working in the local area
  • other persons who have no other place of permanent residence or whose primary place of residence is temporarily unavailable and,
  • visitors who are visiting those who meet the above criteria.

Council is closely monitoring campers staying overnight at Lake Wallace with daily inspections to ensure that there is compliance with the amended Public Health Order. Council is also working with police who are responsible for enforcing compliance with the Public Health Order.

Based on advice and instructions from the State and Federal government, Council will update its COVID-19 response should circumstances change.
