Bendeela Reserve open for school holidays

Bendeela Reserve open for school holidays

26 September 2019

The back area of Bendeela Recreation Area will be open for the October school holidays, including what is expected to be a bumper long weekend.

The back area at Bendeela will be open from noon on Friday 27 September and will close at noon on Monday 14 October. This area includes the alcohol-free camping zones.

Large numbers are expected at Bendeela over the long weekend (5-7 October). If capacity is reached, there will be limits placed on campers entering the site.

Any restrictions will be published on the WaterNSW website.

Security will be on site throughout the holiday period -- and all visitors to Bendeela are reminded to respect other visitors and wildlife and, most importantly, stay safe.

WaterNSW staff will also be making regular patrols throughout the holiday period.

Bendeela is a vital part of Greater Sydney’s drinking water catchment, so all visitors are urged to follow the rules, stay safe and respect wildlife and other visitors throughout their stay.

The recreation area is home to many native animals, especially wombats, and all visitors are asked to give wildlife space during their visit and alert staff should they encounter a sick or injured animal.

Visitors to Bendeela are reminded that there will be signage on site and brochures are available with more information on wombats.

Anyone planning to visit the Bendeela Recreation Area, or any other WaterNSW recreation area over the holiday period, should refer to information on our dams.
