O'Toole Flat Camping Area and Gap Track Bridge CLOSED

Due to the failure of Gap Track Bridge over O'Toole Creek, the O'Toole Flat Camping Area and the section of Gap Track accessed by the Gap Track Bridge, are closed until further notice.
This is to protect O'Toole Creek from damage by vehicles fording the creek without a bridge. O'Toole Creek flows directly into White Creek which is home to the critically endangered Spotted Tree Frog. Spotted Tree Frogs are threatened by loss of vegetation on creek banks, and by sediment in waterways.
When will it be re-opened?
Gap Track Bridge, over O'Toole Creek, is funded for replacement under the Victorian Government's Asset Regeneration Program (High Risk Assets Capital Program). Construction is expected to begin in 2024. The area will be re-opened once the new bridge is in place.

For more information on the Asset Regeneration Program (High Risk Assets Capital Program) – including individual project scopes and live project timeframes, visit the Parks Victoria Asset Regeneration Program page:
