Still not open in the state forest area, but climbing on the private property to the north is now permitted:
Permission to climb on private property at the Northern part of Bulahdelah Mountain -(Cave to beehive areas).
Rock climbers have been given permission to climb on the land owned by Linfield Property Group. The land holders are not responsible for safety, and any climbing activity done on their land, and access to the cliff is done at your own risk.
Climbing is not permitted in the State Forest at present. This means no climbing from the Lookout southwards as this is an Aboriginal Place.
Do not trespass on land belonging to The landowner to the north west of the ridge under any circumstance. He has accused climbers of property damage. If you do not know boundaries it is best to approach via the state forest.
Do not drive onto any private property.
Do not litter. Not even fruit peel.
Do not go to the toilet in the cave.
Do not damage vegetation.
Access to this area is a privilege. Do not jeopardise it for other climbers.
