Mountain Lion (Designated rock-climbing and bouldering area) – Temporary exclusion

Mountain Lion (Designated rock-climbing and bouldering area) – Temporary exclusion
 
Significant Aboriginal cultural values have recently been rediscovered at the Mountain Lion designated rock-climbing and bouldering area.

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.

The Aboriginal Heritage Act 2006 protects Aboriginal cultural heritage and significant financial penalties apply for harm caused by individuals or corporate bodies.

Grampians (Gariwerd) National Park - Bushfire Update

Bushfire Update, Extreme FDR and Total Fire Ban Notification
 
Grampians Gariwerd National Park was impacted by the Bellfield and Stapylton bushfires that were ignited by lightning on February 13th 2024. There are temporary closures in place in the vicinity of the fires, though some visitor areas have re-opened Tuesday February 20th. Roads are still closed from Ararat to Halls Gap through Pomonal township, so the best access to Halls Gap is via Stawell Halls Gap road. However:
 
The Fire Danger Rating for Thursday February 22nd 2024 is Extreme. This means there could be dangerous fire conditions. Expect hot, dry and windy conditions, and possible thunderstorms. Take action now to protect life and property. Check your bushfire plan. Reconsider travel through bushfire risk areas. Leaving bushfire risk areas early is your safest option. Find alternative activities away from forested areas.
 
A Total Fire Ban has also been declared for Thursday February 22nd 2024. This means all camp fires, fires for warmth or personal comfort are banned during the period of declaration (from Midnight Wednesday February 21st to midnight Thursday Feb 22nd). Solid and liquid fuel barbecues and ovens (including hangis) are also banned during Total Fire Ban Days.
