Oh so sad about the Sassafras entrance. I do prefer the Nerriga entrance. And yes it is very boggy. I too experienced several knee deep mud holes. On the plus side the frogs are *&%$#! loving it

So it's been confirmed that it's no longer an option?

I admit to having trouble navigating the NPWS site, but I couldn't find anything about the Sassafras entry closure. Then again, I could never find any mention on the site of it being an entry point to start with.

pedromrsi - How did you find out about the road being closed and the reason for it?

So just rang NPWS. I can confirm Sassafras entry is currently closed. However it's not the worst news as NPWS is currently renewing an access agreement and is waiting on one property to sign off on it. Apparently it seems positive and they just don't want to rush the sign-off in case it turns off the owners.
Apparently NPWS does not advertise that entrance because it would attract too many people and jeopardise access.
The recommendation was stay clear for now until access is secured so as not to jeopardise the signing of the agreement.
Apparently the best way to find out the outcome was to ring up the nowra NPWS office.

I also asked about any news on the corang lagoon access. Apparently the old owners were happy to allow people access. But the new owners are quite the opposite. It doesn't seem like NPWS can organise access to that area. The ranger was going to call me back with some more details on it. I'll post here when I find out more.

Thanks for chasing that up!

Huntsman, any update on the Sassafras entrance?

It is disturbing that getting into the Budawangs is getting more and more difficult. The road into Long Gully is pretty bad right now and you have to drive around a huge hole in the road by going through the campground at the bottom of climb up the last hill. The last hill down to Long Gully is also super eroded.

I've been meaning to check with NPWS but haven't gotten around to it.
Nowra office is the one you need to contact. I might ring up Monday.

Cheers Mate. I called Ulladulla a month ago and am still waiting for a call back!

I will give Nowra call this week. Might ask about the state of the road to Long Gully too.

Rough road is good. Means less people out there when I go walking :wink:

Till someone decides that as the road has hardly any traffic they may as well close it and save ALL the maintenance costs!

Somehow I'm pretty certain that the road to long gully will remain open due to private property, 4wding and logging.

Sasafras entrance is still closed pending a final signature. So no change from last time according to NPWS. The office will check with the ranger tomorrow if any progress has been made.
