Turpins Falls temporarily closed

Monday 14 December, 2020

Turpins Falls near Metcalfe is currently closed until further notice. 
 
Recent rains and an increase in visitation have deteriorated the steps down to the Falls.
 
Following a risk assessment, the entire visitor site has been closed to protect public safety. 
 
Further independent engineering assessment will be undertaken to determine work required to improve track safety at the site. 
 
Signage and fencing are in place to prevent people accessing the car park, track and Falls. Parks Victoria inspects the condition of signage and fencing regularly.
 
To stay up-to-date with the latest conditions at Turpins Falls, visitors are reminded to check www.parks.vic.gov.au and search for Turpins Falls. 
 
Quotes attributable to Peter Foster, District Manager, Parks Victoria:
 
“We ask all visitors to respect the closure of this popular visitor site for their own safety.”
