CLOSED - Stony Creek Backwash Timber Boardwalk

Parks Victoria closed the Stony Creek Backwash timber boardwalk in June 2020 after dive and engineering inspections found it was not safe for public use. 
 
Sections of decking have been removed and handrail installed to prevent pedestrian access to the site and ensure visitor safety. 
 
Access to the Stony Creek Backwash and Yarra River is provided via the Hyde St entrance track. The salvageable portion of the boardwalk has been maintained to provide a viewing and fishing platform for site visitors.
