Access: Bushfire Recovery

A large bushfire burned through North Black Range bouldering areas from late November 2019 to late January 2020. As of 10 May 2021, the park has re-opened after fire-related closures.

Some problems/areas may have been damaged by fire, exercise caution. Any reports on the extent of damage (or lack thereof) would be appreciated, especially if there are unsafe problems/significant damage.

NPWS sign posted at intersection of Forbes Creek Rd and NBR Fire Trail in late June 2021:

Description

This area is the furthest along the track, drive along past Hinterland about 800m and park on the left (not much room) just after you can see a clearing on the right. If you drive past an empty dam on the right you have gone to far, go back 100m. This area has one of the best V2s around, a stunning 4m flake.

Access issues inherited from Black Range bouldering

These boulders lie in a national park. While there are no current access restrictions, please respect the nature of the park and aim to minimise your impact. Refer to the NPWS alerts page for the park for up-to-date access information.
