Great Ocean Road – Parks Victoria update

The recent weather and high rainfall has resulted in the closure of some visitor areas, tracks and campgrounds in parks across the State’s North and West for visitor safety.

Only a small number of parks are completely closed. Most parks across the state remain open, however some tracks, campgrounds, lookouts and access roads may be closed.

Please check for parks affected by flooding here; http://parkweb.vic.gov.au/about-us/news/parks-affected-by-flooding. Information is listed on individual park pages. Use the “Find” navigation button in the top menu bar to search for your nearest park.

The Great Ocean Road remains closed between Cumberland River and Wye River until further notice due to severe structural damage to the roadway, which may fall away under vehicle load.

The section of the Great Ocean Road between Wye River and Skenes Creek is now open to traffic with vehicle restrictions (please find the attached maps).

The road remains closed between Wye River and Separation Creek, due to major landslide issues at Paddy’s Path.  For the latest information on road closures, visit traffic.vicroads.vic.gov.au.
