Seasonal road closures

Many roads and tracks are seasonally closed to vehicle traffic each year. These tracks are closed to vehicles for visitor safety, to maintain water quality and prevent erosion during the wetter months as rain and snow softens the tracks, making them vulnerable to damage.

Seasonal road closures generally operate from the long weekend in June through to the end of October, but may be extended due to seasonal conditions.

 

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Victorian Government has extended the current State of Emergency through to 11.59pm 19 July 2020.

Stay safe by washing your hands, keeping your distance from others and staying home if you feel unwell.

If you have symptoms of coronavirus you should get tested.

While most of Victoria’s parks and reserves are open, physical distancing directions remain in place.

For a more information visit our COVID-19 Update page.

 

Fire affected parks

Due to recent bushfire activity, a number of parks and forests affected by fire have also been closed. For a full list, check Fire affected parks.
