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.
 
Most tracks are open in the River Murray Reserve (adjoining Barmah National Park) including River Road, Corrys Track (part) and Carters Track (Ulupna Island).
 
See 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.

Take care while driving on wet tracks

This summer weather is predicted to be wet. Roads and tracks are easily damaged during wet weather and can only be repaired once the weather clears up and the roads are well dried out. When visiting parks keep an eye out for temporary track closures and if it’s raining or the track looks soft find an alternative route.
 
When driving your car or four-wheel drive in a park keep in mind these basic tips:
-     stay off wet tracks or recently graded roads
-     drive only on formed roads
-     take notice of signage and only use roads that are open to the public and safe to do so
-     avoid wheel spin and churning up track surfaces
-     remove fallen trees or limbs from roads; don’t create new tracks by driving around them

Blue-Green Algae Alert

A red alert level for Blue-green algae has been issued for the Murray River from Red Cliffs to Mildura. A red alert level warning remains in place for Wentworth. Visitors to the Murray River Reserve between these locations, Kings Billabong Park and Murray-Sunset NP - Wallpolla Island should avoid contact with the water. People should not undertake recreational activities where they may be coming into direct contact with the water. Contact with the water may also pose a threat to pets. 
 
People are advised not to enter the water, not to drink untreated water or use the water for other domestic purposes, including cooking and showering/bathing in untreated water while a red alert level warning is in place. Boiling the water will not remove algal toxins.
 
People should not eat mussels or crayfish from red alert warning areas. Any fish caught should be cleaned and washed thoroughly in uncontaminated water and any internal organs disposed of before consumption.
 
Blue-green algae usually appear as green paint-like scums on the water, near the edges, or as greenish clumps throughout the water. It makes the water appear dirty, green or discoloured and generally has a strong musty or earthy odour.
 
Blue-green algae occur naturally and can reproduce quickly in favourable conditions where there is still or slow-flowing water, abundant sunlight and sufficient levels of nutrients.
 
It is not possible to predict how long the algae will remain at high levels. Regular monitoring will continue, and the alert will be lifted as soon as the high levels of algae dissipate.
 
People who believe they may have been affected by blue-green algae are advised to seek medical advice.
