The Park has been impacted due to trees falling down following a violent storm recently….
|**UPDATE – Wed 04 January 2023**|
Gundaroo Park has reopened for short term camping after being closed on and off recently because of problems with our amenities followed by storm damage. Our new Amenities Block is now open and most of the storm damage has been cleared. Some fallen timber will remain in the short term so please be careful around this.
Also stay safe around our big trees keeping in mind that limbs and trees can fall without warning.
|**UPDATE – Sat 19 November**
GUNDAROO PARK OPEN FOR GENERAL USE
We still haven’t finalised the clean-up of the fallen trees but Gundaroo Park will reopen later this morning for general use. Toilets, playground, oval and bike track will be available. Unfortunately we won’t open for camping for another week or two.
The cleanup will go on for a while yet so please take care when using the Park. Parts of the trees have been removed but more will go in coming weeks. We’ll alert you when this work is being done. In the meantime we’ve fenced off
Gundaroo Park was officially proclaimed on 7 December 1886 with William Affleck, Joseph Styles and Thomas Booth as its first trustees. Since then it’s been a NSW Crown Reserve run by volunteers who make up the Gundaroo Park Land Manager Board.
Most of the public assets in Gundaroo are managed and run in the same way, rather than by the local council.
A User Group Sub-committee helps with day-to-day operations. Funds to run the Park come from fundraising, donations from local people and campers and grants.
The old trees are what remain of 140 conifers from around the world planted by Affleck in the 1890s as a “pineretum”. Sections of the old pavilion date back to the early 1900s.
The community uses the Park for sporting and school activities, Scouts, Men’s Shed, family events, exercise and dog walking. Events include the annual Gundaroo Music Festival, historic car and motorbike displays and other special days.
We’re approved as a Primitive Camping Ground for short term stays (contact us for details) and we’re on the National Bicentennial Trail and the National Public Toilet Map.
Camping: Short term camping is allowed but you must register. Please follow information displayed on the Toilet Block and elsewhere about camping.
