Change of Conditions

Nature being nature, sometimes conditions can change at short notice. It’s a good idea to check this page ahead of your visit for any updates.

This park has been impacted by recent significant weather events and is partially closed.

For public safety, Parks Victoria will close areas impacted by severe weather.  Closures are necessary while assessments and works are undertaken to remove risk and repair damage before reopening for visitors.  For your safety, please avoid these impacted areas.
During your visit to the Murray, you may see smaller areas fenced off or areas blocked by bollards. These areas have been closed due to safety and protection reasons. Please do not enter, remove fixtures or drive beyond them.  
Visitors should be aware that river banks have been eroded by flood waters and may be unstable. Holes may have opened up in the ground and should be avoided. Trees along the river banks could be unstable. There is always a risk of trees dropping limbs.    
Parks Victoria is working with Traditional Owners and other government agencies to manage the temporary levee in Echuca’s west. Visitors must not interfere with the levee. 

All camping areas between Torrumbarry Weir Road and Young Road remain closed

Flood affected areas within Gunbower National Park and Murray River Reserve

High river levels and environmental watering within Gunbower Island are inundating camping areas and affecting access to and via River Track. Multiple roads and visitor sites are temporarily closed until floodwaters recede and sites can be assessed as safe. Tree-fall may be an ongoing issue with wet soils and strong winds. We recommend you reconsider your travel plans. For safety reasons, do not drive through flood waters or past road closures. Areas that are open have also been impacted by flooding and road access is poor in some locations. Four Wheel Drive vehicles are recommended
Areas within the State Forest are also affected.  See MapShareVic for road and track closures, and for more information, please visit the Forest and road closures page.
