DUDLEY beach car park will close intermittently over the coming months to allow for a $622,000 facelift of the area.
National Parks and Wildlife Service lower Hunter area manager Mitch Carter said a surf viewing platform and picnic shelters near the car park were part of the suite of works.
"Glenrock State Conservation Area is one of the region's most popular reserves with over one million people visiting every year," said Mr Carter.
