Grampians opening updates
For those who have been hanging out to get back into the Victoria Range, looks like today is the lucky day. Just received official confimation from Parks Victoria that the following areas are now open. All of this will also be on the Grampians page along with a downloadable update and map.
Parks Victoria staff have been working hard on flood and storm damage in the Western area of the Grampians National Park to open areas for local communities and visitors to the region. While many of the roads and visitor sites are now open in this area, some areas will stay closed. Parks Victoria asks visitors to comply to any closures until they are reopen as these roads or sites are still unsafe for visitor access.

“Be safe be prepared” while travelling in this area:
While many roads in the Victoria Valley and the western side of the Park will be open, visitors are advised that traffic hazards still exist and road conditions may be below the usually accepted standard. Park staff have taken much care to ensure that risk issues have been minimised and that road conditions comply with our road management obligations, however hazards may still be present especially after wet weather. Road edges will be of particular concern. Please avoid driving on road edges as they may be soft in places. Four wheel drive vehicles only are recommended after rain as roads will be slippery with uneven surfaces and fallen rocks. Please drive to the conditions and obey road signage and road closures at all times. While great effort has been made to open roads in the Victoria Valley and the western side of the park, there are still areas affected by storm and flood damage.
The following roads, walking track and visitor sites will remain CLOSED until further notice:
Roads Syphon Road Serra Road Glenelg River Road (Boreang Campground to Mt Victory Road) Phillip Island Track Henham Track Sawmill Track Beehive Track Cassidy Gap Road Stony Creek Road All Seasonal Roads and Tracks
Campgrounds Buandik Walking Trails Red Gum Walk The Fortress Paddys Castle
