Carparking at Bungalow Spur Walking is now located at Tronah Reserve

BUNGALOW SPUR CARPARK | Council has been working with the community, the Tronoh Reserve Committee of Management and Parks Victoria to facilitate suitable, safe parking for visitors to the popular Bungalow Spur Walking Track up Mount Feathertop.
This week new signage will be visible to those visiting the walking track:
- A series of permanent signs will designate the area immediately opposite the existing trailhead on Feathertop Track as a drop off zone only, designed for motorists to drop off and collect walkers and their equipment.
- A temporary Variable Message Sign will be installed to direct motorists to a new carparking area in the Tronoh Reserve and limit vehicular traffic on Feathertop Track.
The scope of the Alpine Better Places Harrietville Detailed Concept Design project includes carparking and trailhead facilities in the Tronoh Reserve, and interested members of the community are encouraged to provide feedback on the draft concept designs during the next community consultation planned in early 2021.
For further information, please contact Council on 5755 0555 or info@alpineshire.vic.gov.au.

Road Conditions – Howitt, Tamboritha and Moroka Roads.

Howitt, Moroka and Tamboritha Roads in the Foothills and Southern Alps area of the Alpine National Park are currently recommended for all wheel drive and four wheel drive vehicles with sufficient clearance and appropriate tyres. Road maintenance works have been completed on the Howitt Road in May 2021. Vehicles travelling on the Howitt, Tamboritha (unsealed section) and Moroka Roads require attention to variations of the surface condition. Allow more time for your journey and always drive to the conditions.

Alpine National Park

The section of Alpine National Park east of the Snowy River has been impacted by heavy rainfall during the week leading up to the Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend.  Tracks surfaces are very slippery and trees are likely to be blocked by fallen trees.  Tracks which are known to be affected include: Tingaringy Track, Laurie Track and Armstrong Tk.  Accessing the track network in this area over the long weekend is not recommended and is likely to cause damage to track surfaces.
