Some tracks have been closed to motor vehicles within Barmah National Park for public safety and to protect track conditions following local rainfall and the current flood water remaining on tracks.
 
The following tracks are open within Barmah National Park, however are recommended four-wheel drive only and are subject to change in the short term due to high flooding expected:
Sand Ridge Tk (to the Dharnya Centre), Reserve Tk (part), Ulupna Beach Tk and the access tracks to the Barmah Lakes Day Visitor Area and Campgrounds.
 
Depending on changing conditions, 2WD drive vehicles and some 4WDs, including those with low clearance or without snorkels fitted, may have difficulty accessing some of these tracks. 
It's highly recommended not to attempt to cross flood water for visitor safety and the safety of others.
 
Most tracks are open in the River Murray Reserve and Tocumwal Regional Park (adjoining Barmah National Park) including Carters Tk (part) and Barmah Creek Tk (part).
 
See the attached map for tracks that remain open, highlighted maroon recommended for 4x4 only access.
 
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 damage.
