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.

Reservoir Road CLOSED

Reservoir Road is closed to vehicle traffic due to a small section of the road that is very boggy. Recent rain has hampered our efforts to fix the road. The road will remain closed now until the end of winter. Reservoir Road is seasonally closed from the Thursday after the Kings Birthday Long Weekend until September 15 or until road conditions allow.


The closure of Reservoir Road adds an additional 3kms each way for walks to Mt McLeod, Rocky Creek, Eagle Point and Og Gog & McGog.
Parking is available at the junction of Reservoir  Road and Mt Buffalo Road near the Vic Roads depot.
