Volunteering in parks is a great way to contribute to conserving Victoria’s special places. The many personal benefits of volunteering include learning more about plants and wildlife, gaining new skills, being in the outdoors, improving health and well being and meeting new friends. Time spent in nature also reduces stress and promotes physical wellbeing.

    Current Access in Barmah National Park & adjoining River Murray Reserve and Tocumwal Regional Park 21/01/2022

    Many tracks within Barmah National Park are Closed to motor vehicles access, for public safety, to avoid damage to tracks and reduce environmental harm.
    This is due to a recent flooding event and local rainfall that has resulted in high water levels and boggy conditions, impacting access tracks in the majority of the Barmah National Park. River levels have increased due to releases from the upper catchment and further access assessments will be conducted this week as we assess flood levels and access.
     
    The following tracks are OPEN within Barmah National Park area, however we recommend Four-Wheel Drive access only and conditions are subject to change at any time without notice:
    • Sand Ridge Tk (including the Dharnya Centre and the Lakes camp ground) up to and including Trickeys lane, there is No access to the River via Sandridge track.
    • Ulupna Island (Barmah National Park and Tocumwal Regional Park) Most Beaches and tracks are Open.
    • Gulf Track up to and including River Rd down stream of Gulf to top island and upstream to Tongalong island.
    • Barmah Island river Rd, Note; tracks are in poor condition.
    • The Ranch (south of Barmah not shown on map)
     
    See the attached map for tracks that remain OPEN , highlighted Green recommended for 4x4 only access. Red Dots at Gateways indicate tracks that are closed due to Flood water.
     
    For all of the latest change of conditions regarding Barmah National Park and surrounding reserves, please see https://www.parks.vic.gov.au/places-to-see/parks/barmah-national-park.
     
    Current River flows have decreased to 15,000 Megalitre’s a day out of Yarrawonga weir. We will review access on a weekly basis and open the closed areas as soon as possible. Please take care on all tracks due to the wet conditions and if you can avoid using wet tracks, please do so to prevent Track and Vehicle damage.
