Attention land managers impacted by the Palmers Oaky or Gospers Mountain fires.

If you have large animals that can be led on a lead or fitted with a halter and handled (excluding cattle), and a bushfire plan that involves leaving early, Bathurst Showground will be open as a self-care large animal evacuation centre from 9am Thursday 19 December. Please note that Tony Luchetti Showground, Lithgow is no longer available for large animals, by direction of the Local Land Services.

Animal owners are reminded that care of your animals including adequate food supply, as well as full time supervision remains your responsibility once you arrive at the evacuation centre.

Owners are also asked to bring appropriate identification for their animals.
