Get out and about in Gippsland this long weekend

Friday 24 January, 2014

Parks Victoria is reminding visitors that despite the recent bushfire activity in East Gippsland there are still plenty of parks to explore this coming long weekend.

Acting Regional Director- Eastern Victoria Helen Dixon said Gippsland is a vast region with plenty on offer for visitors from exploring the heritage area of Walhalla to going underground at Buchan Caves Reserve, to a cruise the Gippsland Lakes or enjoying the stunning vistas of Corner Inlet.

" I am sure visitors will have fun exploring our many parks and waterways."

Parks Victoria is working with local and statewide tourism operators to ensure that visitors are aware of the many holiday opportunities in parks across Victoria.

Visitors are reminded the park closures will remain in place for public safety for the time-being to allow fire-fighters to continue backburning and clearing efforts.

The parks currently closed in Gippsland include:

- Errinundra National Park

- Lind National Park

- Snowy River National Park to the EAST of the Snowy River

There are also track closures in place at some of the Gippsland parks including:

- Avon Wilderness Park

- Bemm River Scenic Reserve

- Southern tracks in the Alpine National Park around Lake Tali Karng

We recommend visitors check www.parks.vic.gov.au for the latest walking track reopening information.
