Mt Warning Road is closed due to bushfires in the region.

The Tweed Shire Council says NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) requested the road’s closure to stop people entering Wollumbin National Park.

The closure is at the gate approximately two kilometres past the Mt Warning Rainforest Park.

Visitors to the area are advised to check the NPWS website for up to date information before travelling.

All national parks in the Northern Rivers region, including the major attractions of Mebbin National Park and Brunswick Heads Nature Reserve, have been closed due to the high to catastrophic fire risk.

Cape Byron State Conservation Area is the only area remaining open to the public.
