Tali Karng partial opening

Due to fires in March 2019, many tracks around Tali Karng were impacted from fire. Parks Victoria has been working to assess and reinstate impacted tracks and can confirm that access to Tali Karng is now open via the Wellington River and Clive Lanigan Walking Track from the Tamboritha Road trail head.  All other access routes via Riggall Spur, Gillios Track, Echo Point Track and Wellington Plains remain closed. Parks Victoria asks all hikers to respect this decision and not enter areas listed as closed. For details visit fire affected parks.
