High Country tracks reopen for summer

High Country tracks reopen for summer

Seasonal road closures lifted for most tracks in the Victorian High Country.

MANY roads and tracks in the Victorian High Country have reopened in readiness for the warmer months.

The seasonal road closures in the region typically take place between June and the end of October, but there are a few closures that have been extended.

In addition to vehicle safety, the tracks are seasonally closed to maintain water quality and prevent erosion during the wetter months “as rain and snow soften the tracks, making them vulnerable to damage,” explains Parks Victoria.

If you plan on travelling the blissful High Country tracks, be adequately prepared, maintain your vehicle and remember to always be safe.

It’s also going to be a stinking hot summer this year, so be vigilant around campfires and remember to ALWAYS follow the fire safety announcements and adhere to fire restrictions. Information can be found here: https://www.ffm.vic.gov.au/visiting-state-forests/forest-and-road-closures
