Passchendaele remains closed
Due to damage to roads caused by heavy rain in southern Queensland since December, Passchendaele plantation forest will remain closed until road repairs can be completed, which is expected to take several more months due to the severity of damage across the entire plantation road network. Repairs have been delayed due to ongoing wet weather.
The status of the closures will be updated on the closure page on our website.
We are appealing to all recreation users to respect closures and restrictions so safe and responsible access to the plantations can be restored as soon as possible.
Plantation forest closures fall under the Forestry Act 1959 and can be enforced by police, QPWS rangers and plantation officers. Fines for non-compliance currently range from $276 to almost $1,400.
State and local government-managed roads through plantations remain open unless otherwise indicated by road signage or police.
Please refer to the Parks and Forests website www.parks.des.qld.gov.au for restrictions in relation to campgrounds managed by Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service in this area.
