Forest re - opening delayed

wingello state forest

The re - opening of the North Eastern section of the Wingello State Forest has been delayed .

The forest was badly impacted by the Morton Fire in January last year and a Forestry Corporation Spokesperson says significant periods of wet weather have hampered efforts to have the clean-up completed & the forest re-opened as soon as they had anticipated.

It might also be another 12 months before the camp site will be completed & ready for public access.

The mountain bike trails will be progressively opened in stages to allow some access while works

continue.
