Grampians National Park Update

Thursday 23 January, 2014

On 15 January 2014 a total of seven fires were ignited by lightning across the Grampians National Park. Three of these fires combined and caused a large bushfire that swept through the northern end of the Grampians National Park and onto private property.

With many parts of the Grampians National Park not affected by fire, it remains a great place enjoy the great outdoors 

Walking trails are  open in the southern area of the Grampians National Park including Mount Sturgeon, the Piccaninny and Mount Abrupt. 

The Victoria Range, in the western area of the Grampians, including Chimney Pots, Buandik Falls, Buandik campsite and Manja Shelter also remain open. 

The villages of Halls Gap, Dunkeld, Dadswell’s Bridge and Pomonal are open to visitors, including The Grampians Tourist Road from Halls Gap to Dunkeld.

Camping is open at Jimmy Creek, Wannon Crossing and Borough Huts and Kalymna Falls.

From midday Thursday 23 January, the Wonderland area will be open, including the very popular Pinnacle day walk.

 In the interests of visitor safety, it is important not to enter closed sections until they have been assessed by Parks Victoria.

The map and list below will soon be updated with recent further reopenings.

Attached is  a map and a list of visitor sites, walking tracks and roads that are currently open to the public.
