Blowering eastern forehores have been locked up. If you want to camp, you have to go to Yachting Point and set up camp next to the Bundy swilling morons in their skit boats. :(

Root Hog fire trail has now been closed by Bathurst Council due to illegal shooting on the private property the trail goes through.

So now the "Bridal Track" is not accessible from Bathurst, it is now effectively a no through road from Hill End.

Selfish inconsiderate bastards! Another nail in the coffin for law abiding shooters & 4X4 drive owners.
When will people wake up & realise the only rights we have in this country are the ones that we are given to us by the law makers, with "rights" comes "responsibility" . Bloody oxygen thieves.

Unfortunately they have history on this sort of thing - hence they have no credibility with authorities when they supposedly go to bat for us.

I'm from tassie, so basically being locked out of everywhere, sometimes makes you wonder why you bother owning a 4wd

It appears this year is the last time your'll be able to cross the the Eucumbene River at the Denison Campground near Providence Portal.It a real shame as it's a great place to camp on the far bank next to the lake and your only driving on the lake bed which will be submerged next spring so its hardly damaging the environment. Certain people have been complaining for a few years and now the bollard will go up in 2017.

"Media release from Monaro Acclimatisation Society...

Monaro Acclimatisation Society calls a meeting on vehicle access to the Eucumbene River Brown Trout Spawning Run at Denison
================================================
On Wednesday 30 March 2016 the Monaro Acclimatisation Society Inc (MAS) hosted a meeting with anglers and representatives from Snowy Hydro, Kosciuszko National Park, NSW Fisheries, NSW Maritime and the Lake Eucumbene Chamber of Commerce to try and resolve the issue of continuing environmental degradation of the Eucumbene River banks at the Denison Campground near Providence Portal, NSW.

Steve Samuels, President of the MAS said his organisation had received many calls from anglers who were concerned that the unlimited vehicle access to the river during the annual brown trout spawning run posed a threat to the river and the spawning fish. He also said that other authorities such as Snowy Hydro and NSW Fisheries had received similar calls.

The brown trout spawning run in the Eucumbene River has gained significant popularity over the last few years. Last year vehicle counts indicated that up to 140 vehicles per day were accessing the river bank at Denison, crossing the river with drivers often cutting new tracks in an effort to reach more secluded water. Kosciuszko National Park authorities were also concerned over the continued illegal vehicle access to the Park from the Denison access point.

Mr Samuels said that if something was not done now to limit the damage, he was fearful that authorities would take a hardline approach in the future that might make access to this fabulous fishing event even harder.

The meeting discussed all the issues and it was clear that all present wanted to see angler participation on the river continue, but the uncontrolled vehicle access could no longer be tolerated due to the damage being done.

The obvious thing to do Mr Samuels said was to develop a car park away from the river where anglers could park in safety. This would stop the damage being done, but would also allow anglers to access the river with relative ease. While it may be a bit of a walk, he said, that is better than losing this fishery either through the spawning run being “loved to death” or a harsher measure later on when things were much worse.

The meeting members identified that if vehicles were to be directed to a designated parking area it would have to be built above the high water mark of the lake so that it did not become a navigation hazard during higher lake levels.

Mr Samuels said that the meeting resolved to progress the issue. While it is not possible to do anything for this year’s run, he said, the intention was to have the matter resolved for the 2017 run.
Mr Samuels said that he hoped all anglers would recognize the need to protect the river because without it remaining in pristine condition it places the brown trout spawning run in jeopardy. While there may be a bit of a walk in the future, he said, the benefits to anglers and the fish will outweigh any inconvenience."

Tea tree ridge track across the river from Grant goldfields above Dargo. NEMA maps show it open though definitely closed for sometime. Overgrown and earth barrier at the start of the track.

Bore track?? The track that I know as the Bore Track from Innamincka goes the other way, down the old Strez to Merty Merty & Cameron's Corner & that is Closed unless you get special written permission from the Station. :ooh:

However, if you want to go to Birdsville then I believe the Cordillo Down's Road is open, but I would never recommend that one even to my worst enemy, suggesting & strongly recommending that you go out via the Dig Tree, Arrabury, Haddon's Corner, & Beetoota then the Development Rd instead (unless you really have a death wish or absobloodylutely hate your vehicle!) & that is open; or you could take Walker's Crossing Track, which cuts across between Innaminka & the Birdsville track & is currently open to 4WD's with caution at erosion & corrugated areas. :thumb:

My bad. I did mean south from Innamincka to Cameron's Corner. The Bore track is between the old strez & the border.

Cheers

Yeah, that one is closed to the General Public, but you can ask & if you ask nicely enough, who knows! ;)
