Volunteering in parks is a great way to contribute to conserving Victoria’s special places. The many personal benefits of volunteering include learning more about plants and wildlife, gaining new skills, being in the outdoors, improving health and well being and meeting new friends. Time spent in nature also reduces stress and promotes physical wellbeing.

    Many tracks within Barmah National Park are Closed to motor vehicles access, for public safety, to avoid damage to tracks and reduce environmental harm.
    This is due to a recent flooding event and local rainfall that has resulted in high water levels and boggy conditions, impacting access tracks in the majority of the Barmah National Park. River levels have increased due to releases from the upper catchment and further access assessments will be conducted this week as we assess flood levels and access.
    The following tracks are OPEN within Barmah National Park area, however we recommend Four-Wheel Drive access only and conditions are subject to change at any time without notice:
