Yadboro Flat access

Postby Hoojar » Tue 24 May, 2022 2:54 pm

Has anyone been to Yadboro Flat recently? The Forestry websites says it is '4WD only,' but I'd love some information newer than 9 February. I am taking some friends camping there and then up Pigeon House.

Thanks!

Update: The NPWS website lists Pigeon House as closed. I rang the local office, and they were surprised it is closed, suspect it is due to the roads, and could give no time fram on reopening.

That page you linked with the list of closed parks has been like that for months. There is no evidence of closure at 4 or 5 of the parks on the list that I have been to in the last month or so. I would ignore it. I think it is NPWS doing their usual CYA stuff. We just have not had that much rain lately and closing every "unsealed track and trail" is silly as all the tracks are unsealed because they are tracks!

But, I have no recent knowledge of the road into Long Gully and it has been getting rougher and rougher.

I tried to drive into Long Gully along the Western Distribution Road on the ANZAC day weekend. Got about half way down where the road was closed. So we ended up driving to Wog Wog and walking from there for a few days. I am not sure if you can get in from the coast road to Pigeon House.

I went to Long Gully carpark last October and you seriously needed a 4WD for the last few kms. With all the rain since, I suspect it is worse.

Access to Long gully via the western distributor road will probably be out for some time, at least one bridge was lost there

https://www.forestrycorporation.com.au/ ... -is-closed

Surprised NPWS haven't put something up for that yet.

Thanks for that link. We didn't drive all the way to this washed out bridge. There was a sign way back warning that the road was closed. Still it would have been nice if there was a sign at the Kings Highway turnoff as we had driven a fair way before finding out we had to turn back.
