Entry to Schedule One Special Areas and Controlled Areas purely for recreation or tourism, such as motorcycling, four wheel driving, camping, bushwalking, cycling or horseriding, or for organised or group recreational events, is prohibited. Entry for bushwalking is allowed in the Warragamba and Blue Mountains Schedule One Special Areas along specific bushwalking corridors or within specified areas. The WaterNSW brochure 'Special Areas - what you can and can't do' at the bottom of this page explains the restrictions that apply to the Special Areas, Controlled Areas and Water Storages and includes a map.

Recreational access for bushwalking is allowed in Schedule Two Special Areas, but vehicle access including motorcycles and cars is prohibited. WaterNSW also manages and maintains a large number of recreation sites open to the general public including picnic and camping areas adjacent to WaterNSW managed dams.
