Change of Conditions

Nature being nature, sometimes conditions can change at short notice. It’s a good idea to check this page ahead of your visit for any updates.

Barbeques not in operation

  • Parks Victoria is carrying out inspections in all of our barbecues in our parks. Following these inspections, some barbecues have been temporarily closed until they can be attended by a licenced contractor. We apologise for the inconvenience this has caused.
  • Visitor safety is our top priority and we advise people to please not to use any barbecue facilities that have been closed. We expect the impacted barbecues to reopen in the coming weeks. 

Lyster Track CLOSED until further notice

A section of Lyster Track, between Boys Farm Track and Lower Buckle Trail, is CLOSED until further notice. This is due to erosion and degradation of the track surface causing unsafe conditions. We are working to repair the issue and recommend detouring via Boys Farm Track or Powells Track (towards East West Break or Lamberts Track) in the meantime (see attached Detour Map).
