Great Ocean Walk - conditions

Walking Track -
The Great Ocean Walk is experiencing wet and muddy conditions.  A wet winter and spring have seen conditions along most areas of the track maintain high levels of moisture, tending to mud in heavily tracked areas.  Walkers should not expect a dry walking track which will be slippery in areas. Some sections of track are prone to land slippage and rock fall.  Only attempt to cross these areas if safe to do so and report any slips to 13 1963 when within phone signal range.
 
Camp sites -
All sites are high in dampness.  More rainfall will see these conditions maintained.  Camp site water tanks are all fall as a positive.
 
Tree Risk in Windy Conditions -
Given high National Park soil moisture levels tree fall in windy conditions are probable.  Walkers and campers should be on heightened alert in windy conditions and avoid prolonged periods under tree canopy.  Wind forecasts of 30+kph should trigger a walker and camper alert level. Report tree fall over track and in camp sites to 13 1963 when within phone signal range.
