THE Bogey Hole is without a confirmed re-opening date, while the NSW Department of Primary Industries waits for the results of a geotechnical engineering report it said would be delivered “soon”.
A department spokesperson said DPI Lands commissioned the report following Newcastle City Council’s concerns about the stability of the terrain above the convict-built swimming pool.
“The results of this report are expected soon and the department will advise the community shortly thereafter on any work required to make the Bogey Hole safe,” the spokesperson said. “Members of the public should respect the exclusion in place and stay away. Attempts to enter the site are highly irresponsible and a potential danger to the public.”
DPI Lands closed access to the landmark in December.
