FYI

http://www.fwdvictoria.org.au/upload/track info/2010_10_21 PV DSE Forest road and track open.pdf

“Some significant roads and tracks in our forests and parks that were temporarily closed on June 17 won’t re-open as usual because of the damage to the road surface or important crossings in September’s severe wet weather,” Mr Williamson said.

“This is particularly the case in the Alpine National Park north of the Great Divide, the Howqua Hills Historic

Area, and the parks along the Murray upstream from Barmah.”

“Some of the significant roads and tracks that won’t re-open on October 28th include

• King Basin Road (Alpine National Park)
• Howqua Hills Track (Alpine National Park)
• Mt Pinnabar Track (Alpine National Park)
• Circuit Road, from Howqua Gap to King Saddle (North East)
• Clear Hills from Circuit Road to Craigs Hut (North East)
• Upper Dargo Road (East Gippsland)
• Main Mt Cole Road (South West)
• Waterace Road (South West)
• Macalister River Track (Alpine National Park)
• Bluff Link Road (Alpine National Park)
• 16 Mile Jeep Track (Alpine National Park)
• Little Cobbler Track (Alpine National Park)
• Speculation Road (Alpine National Park)
• Burnt Hut Creek Track (Grampians National Park) …./2
• Lynches Crossing Track (Grampians National Park)
• Briggs Track (Grampians National Park)
• Moora Track (Grampians National Park) and
• Mair Track (Grampians National Park)
“Any roads that were temporarily closed but haven’t been damaged will re-open as normal on October 28.”

"While the wet weather has shut some tracks it has also given the environment a new lease of life. Spring is a great time to get out and see the impact of the recent rains and there are hundreds of great tracks and trails through our parks and forests that are open and accessible.

“We ask anyone who is affected by an extension to the temporary closure of a road or track to be patient and continue to obey the closure until repairs are completed.”

“The best advice is to check local conditions on the website."

For more information about road closures contact the DSE Customer Service Centre on 136 186 or Parks Victoria on 13 1963 or go to www.parkweb.vic.gov.au

Jeez, the area around Mt Stirling & Clear Hills must have been hammered by the weather with all those track closures in that area. Either that or there is a $HITE load of trees down all over the place.

It's the circuit road a ski trail for Mt Stirling in Winter?

We had a group of about 10 cars heading up to Pineapple Flat / King Hut area next weekend...... Time for plan 'B'!!!!

Have a look at this on the Howqua to see how much was washed about.... And the King River was worse.

There would be some interesting river crossings, as well as culverts in the road.

Eildon is 63% now! You can't help but wonder why the Thomson is still only at 30%???

As the article says.... there are still a stack of other places you can go to. I camped last weekend (in the bad weather) on the Wellington River just north of Licola. There are some great secluded spots along there if you haven't got your plan B in place yet.

I stayed at Sheepyard 3 weeks ago and walked into Fry's Hut, The height of the river was incredible. The size of some the trees have have been flowing down there and washed up.

Guess I'll have to look for plan B too

There was a pic in the Mansfield Courier mail a few weeks back of Carters Rd with a large section dissapeared!
