This post is old but the newsletters are new and contain new and relevant information Due to a number of the fires now joining together, the closures below have been put inplace. Most of this affects the Southern part of the Grampians where there are a large number of climbing sites. At this stage the North and Central parts of the Park remain open and safe for visitors to enjoy but Parks Victoria advises visitors not to go overnight walking and for campers to stay in designated campgrounds only. Please be aware at all times though as conditions can change quickly.

The fires formerly known as Burnt Hut Track, Clutterbucks Road and Jensens Road have joined together and are now being called the Victoria Valley Complex. The size of the fire is approximately 12,000 hectares. Southerly winds overnight and throughout the day have pushed the fire across the Victoria Range. Some spotting may be occurring. Planned burns completed last autumn along the Harrop Track within the Grampians National Park are expected to assist with controlling the spread of the fire to the west.
The fires in the Grampians National Park are affecting the southern end of the Park. For the safety of visitors the following closures have been put in place until further notice: All areas of the Victoria Valley and Victoria Range Areas are CLOSED – Parks Victoria are advising visitors to the Grampians National Park that the Victoria Valley (area South of Mount Victory Road) and Victoria Range (West of the Serra Range) are closed.
