NSW - Picton to Yerranderie to Porters Retreat

My google is not playing ball, but hope someone can help me.

Is the road from Picton to Yerranderie (via Sheehys Creek rd and The Sheepwalk Dr) a valid route?
And then from Yerranderie to Porters Retreat (uni rover track & Oberon - Colong stock route) passable on a big pig?

Thx

Can confirm the no access.

Was there in September this year. Free camping ground is fantastic.

Was talking to the guys from National Parks who were there at the time. There is no access from the east, however guys do it, but have to drag their bikes under fences to get through. Enforcement is done by NPWS.

We came down through Jenolan Caves, State Forest along Tuglow Forest Road down to Yerranderie. We were on loaded DR650's without a single problem, good track the whole way. We did a couple of single track sections to make the day interesting.

The next day we headed across the Braidwood and into Deua National Park to Bendethra Camping Area.

Camping is not free, but hot showers are great.

What happened to Government Town? Used to be free? Private town charges for camping. The ADV get together there in 2007 was at Government Town

Almost fell for the same trick. As of three months ago there was a free NPWS campground on the other side of the landing strip. Pit toilets, water from the tanks at the back of the old police station and court house.

There is the pay camping site further through the town, I think is Government Town or similar with hot water etc. however is a pay site. Probably worth it but was the first day away of five for us.

Free camp site but had to share it with a few others, almost collected a dozen of their mates, and two emu, on the way in the afternoon before.

Mmmmmmm, a quick Google reveals that National Parks run 10 escorted tours there each year thru the prohibited area,interesting!I wonder if motorbikes would be welcome?
Somehow I think not!
