Rosea, Bundaleer and the Grampians Road/Track Report

Looks like we are finally back to the standard and regular road and track report for the Grampians.


Next week, Parks Victoria will be opening eight seasonal 4WD tracks in time for the Long Weekend. Some seasonal roads will stay closed due to flood damage. See below for the list of roads, openings and conditions.


While we are on the subject of the Grampians, a little more info on Rosea and Bundaleer.  With perfect climbing time coming up for those areas, the questions are on everyones lips. Things are finally on the move towards accessing Rosea and Bundaleer. One of the main problems is the road access with both Silverband and Mt Victory Road receiving the worst damage.  The two roads fall under the care of VicRoads so gaining access means not only working in with PV and their schedule, but more importantly fitting in with the VicRoads schedule.

From what I understand now, VicRoads will be finalising their contractor for work on the Silverband Road by the end of October. Access is currently only open to the Sundial Carpark. While there could be a possibility of opening up the next section, VicRoads will be using the Rosea carpark for their trucks and equipment as well as moving up and down the roads,so access via here might not be an option.  I have a number of thoughts and proposals on the possibility of us accessing it via here but the end decision will lie with VicRoads.  As we are not looking at just climbers accessing this. the possibility of too many cars and not enough carparking might be an issue.

David Roberts, Head ranger at Grampians is keen though to help work on a solution to get the areas of Rosea and Bundaleer open whilst work is continuing on the roads.The other option which may be a more viable one is accessing it via a section of Stony Creek Road off Glenelg Road. Repairs can be undertaken to fix this section of road so as to allow access.  Parking will bestill be an issue along  Stony Creek Road so this is something we will need to tackle for a temporary solution. As work would begin on the start of this section, Bundaleer is the obvious first site. I have an inspection visit to the area lined up for mid November.  I am really keen to see if there was any impact from the floods to the climbers access track and climbing areas in both Rosea and Bundaleer and this will give us a much better idea of how soon we may be able to get in there and if there is any work that we need to do on our tracks.

Please Note: The Mt Zero Rd has been resurfaced in some areas between Halls Gap and Plantation Campground,  drivers are urged to take care particularly after rain. Most roads in the Victoria Valley area are open but can be wet in places. The parks roads are still quite wet and slippery particularly along the edges, A four wheel drive vehicle is recomended if travelling on unsealed roads within the park. Old Mill Rd is closed between Roses Crk Rd and Boroka Lookout Rd. Bullawin Rd is closed.
