William Bay National Park update.

Published: Tuesday, 21 July 2020 at 11:52:14 AM

The anticipated re-opening date of William Bay National Park ​has been revised to late August. The supply of some materials and services was impacted by the recent regional boundary closures which has pushed out the project delivery timing.  Both the Parks and Wildlife Service and the project contractors are committed to completing the project in a timely manner. Your patience and understanding is appreciated.


​In recent weeks, Parks and Wildlife rangers have noticed a steady increase in the number of people ​ignoring closure signage and accessing the site without lawful authority. Visitors must refrain from entering the site, even when there appears to be no machinery in operation. This area is a construction site and, for everyone's safety, no visitors are permitted to enter the park until such time that the works are completed. Fines will be issued to people found illegally accessing the site during the park closure.


Planning for Stage 3 of the project is well underway and will focus on upgrading pedestrian access to Greens Pool and Elephant Rocks including pathway ​upgrades, boardwalk ​and lookout construction, interpretive signage installation and beach access ​improvements.  The park will remain open when Stage 3 works are undertaken in the 2020-21 financial year, however there may be ​pedestrian and vehicle detours, and other minor disruptions whilst works are being completed.
