NSW Forests partially closed after bushfires

Friday 2 Feb 2024

Forestry Corporation of NSW has closed burnt areas in Bibblewindi, Jacks Creek and Pilliga East State Forests to the public following the recent Duck Creek fire.

The damage is a potential safety risk to visitors. Forestry Corporation staff are currently assessing burnt areas to ensure that roads and fire trails are safe for the public.

Burnt and damaged trees may pose a significant safety risk due to falling, particularly after heavy rainfall or in high winds.

Once a comprehensive assessment of all forest roads, fire trails and adjacent tree-lined areas and any remedial works carried out, Forestry Corporation will look to reopen the affected areas.
