While Parks Victoria and Gariwerd Traditional Owners determine a longer-term management response, and out of respect for this significant cultural landscape, visitors are requested to not access this area.

Take Action Now: To aid your survival, park visitors to Grampians (Gariwerd) National Park will need to enact their fire plans now.
Conditions tomorrow will be extremely hot, dry and windy. If a fire starts and takes hold, it will be uncontrollable, unpredictable and fast moving. Spot fires could start, move quickly and come from many directions. These are the most dangerous conditions for a fire. Your life may depend on the decisions you make, even before there is a fire. Waiting until you see smoke is far too late to make plans to leave.
 
Enact your fire plan now:
·        Park visitors are encouraged to leave the National Park tonight, or first thing tomorrow morning
·        Phone reception is limited throughout the National Park, hence the reason to leave;  you may not receive emergency warnings
·        Tune your car radio into local ABC or MIXX fm radio stations (listen on the hour) to receive news and emergency broadcasts
·        Download the Vic Emergency app and set up a local zone to receive emergency alerts, or call the Vic Emergency hotline 1800 226 226 for emergency bushfire updates
