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

Seasonal road closures generally operate from after the Kings Birthday long weekend in June through to the end of October, but the closures may be extended if conditions are not suitable to safely re-open the roads.
