Temporary Walking Track Closure

A large number of fallen trees caused by recent weather events have made the Lake Surprise and Lava Canal Walking tracks unsafe. 

Plans are in place to re-open the walking tracks, however they will remain closed until it is safe to do so.  
Visitor safety is our highest priority. 
Parks Victoria apologises for any inconvenience.
