Between June and November, many of the roads and tracks in Victoria’s state forests and parks are closed to protect the environment, as well as the safety of visitors.

During these cooler and often wetter months, sensitive environments and public access tracks become more vulnerable to damage, particularly as they’re softened by heavy rain or snow.

To prevent potential damage to roads, as well as tracks and trails, seasonal road closures are put in place by public land authorities. These not only help to protect forests, parks and waterways, but they also limit access to areas that may become unsafe for visitors in wet weather.

Check the roads before you go

If you’re planning to visit a state forest or park, make sure you check which roads are closed on the More to Explore app. This will also show you the recreation sites that are impacted.

You can also view all seasonally closed roads and tracks in forests and parks on our interactive map on the FFMVic website.

Information on general road closures can be found on the VicTraffic website.
