Grampians (Gariwerd) National Park Update – Grand Canyon Loop Walk - Staircase Installation


The Grand Canyon Loop Walk remains closed while the staircase installation is completed.

The Grand Canyon Staircase was identified as an asset which required replacement due to compliance and safety considerations and will be replaced via the Asset Regeneration Program. This is a $24.76 million investment by the Victorian Government to remove unsafe infrastructure and to repair or replace a range of assets across the Parks Victoria estate including boardwalks, bridges, lookouts, shelters and playgrounds.

Mountain Lion (Designated rock-climbing and bouldering area) – Temporary exclusion

Significant Aboriginal cultural values have recently been rediscovered at the Mountain Lion designated rock-climbing and bouldering area.

While Parks Victoria and Gariwerd Traditional Owners determine a longer-term management response, and out of respect for this significant cultural landscape, visitors are requested to not access this area.

The Aboriginal Heritage Act 2006 protects Aboriginal cultural heritage and significant financial penalties apply for harm caused by individuals or corporate bodies.

Grampians National Park – Planned Burns Program

Forest Fire Management Victoria (FFMVic) have now completed the Autumn Planned Burns Program in Grampians (Gariwerd) National Park and surrounding reserves. Patrols and some road closure remain in place.
 
Two additional planned burns have been scheduled for Winter (June/July 2024).
 
These planned burns have been nominated and approved as part of the FFMVic three-year Joint Fuel Management Program for the Wimmera Fire District. Each burn has been designated to a year and season, though this may change depending on burn objectives and seasonal conditions. You can view the three-year plan at https://www.ffm.vic.gov.au/bushfire-fuel-and-risk-management/joint-fuel-management-program
 
The map attached, outlines the burns programmed for this year. Detailing the exact date and time of ignition can be difficult and the final decision to proceed may only be made on the day of the burn - once resources, weather conditions and local fuel moisture levels are deemed suitable. Once a burn is scheduled for ignition, FFMVIC will send out regular notifications.
 
Some of the planned burns may involve the temporary closure of visitor sites, roads and campgrounds within Grampians Gariwerd National Park and other reserves. This may include detours or closures of hike in campgrounds along the Grampians Peaks Trail, and other vehicle-based campgrounds.
·      Closures will be enforced for the duration of ignition and may remain in place for some days.  Visitor sites will re-open once the burn is declared safe.
·      We recommend that you seek information and stay informed about the status of the planned burns scheduled near you.
