Messengers Regulator Bridge on River Track Closed

River track has dried out and accessible but is a "no through road". Washaways are present but are signposted so drive to conditions. 

Unfortunately, Messengers regulator is significantly damaged from floods and is impassible hence a no through road. Be sure to check maps as to river bends or tracks you wish to visit as you may have to enter river track from the north or south end of the park.

Mournpall Campground Access via Konardin track

Access is recommended using a 4x4 vehicle due to the track being sandy and standing water during times of rain. 

Due to flooding Mournpall Track is still inaccessible in two sections cutting off traffic from the south and north of the park.
To access the Mournpall Campground you need to enter via the Old Calder Highway onto Nowingi Track then onto Konardin Track. You will need to pass through an unlocked gate to reach Mournpall Track. Turn right and follow Mournpall Track into the campground.
Please find a map attached.
