Grampians National Park closures due to planned burning

Friday 22 April, 2022

Planned burning will close sections of the Grampians Peaks Trail and key visitor sites at short notice from March to June 2022. It is important you consider this interruption when planning your trip.

Planned burning is a critical part of park management and reducing bushfire risk in the Grampians National Park. The right weather conditions are needed for a safe and effective burn- cool to warm temperatures, very little wind, no rain. We appreciate these are the same great conditions most people hope for when visiting a park. Because planned burning is so dependent on the right weather conditions, we cannot give exact dates or times when they will occur. They can be moved forward/backward or cancelled at short notice.
