The parks remain open throughout the year but, it can be extremely hot from November to April and this is bushfire season: campfires are not permitted; parks, roads and recreation sites may have to be temporarily closed and events cancelled without notice. It can get very cold at night during winter and this is when the region experiences most of its rainfall. Go to the Bureau of Meteorology for more climate and weather information.
