Green Cape hazard reduction update

Hazard reduction burning in the Green Cape area of Ben Boyd National Park has spread beyond containment lines but property, including the Light Station, is not at risk, NPWS has said.

"Eden and other communities to the north of Green Cape may experience smoke this afternoon or evening if the predicted southerly change eventuates.

"The Light to Light walking track from Bittangabee Bay to Green Cape is closed to the public at this time, however Bittangabee campground and all other formal camping areas remain open at this stage," the NPWS spokeswoman said.

"The road to Green Cape is closed from the Bittangabee turnoff while NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service and the Rural Fire Service manage the fire, however it will re-open as soon as is safely possible."

This road closure means the fishing vantages of Pulpit Rock and City Rock are not accessible while crews are working in the region.

The Rural Fire Service reported at 9.15am Wednesday, March 5, that a forest fire covering 230 ha, at Pulpit Rock, Green Cape was being controlled.
