More Mallee parks reopen for Long Weekend
Friday 7 March, 2014
Parks Victoria has reopened two more Mallee parks ahead of the forthcoming Labour Day Long Weekend.
Wyperfeld National Park and Lake Albacutya Park will reopen from today, however North West District Manager Dale Antonysen says a number of road closures will be in place throughout both parks.
“Parks Victoria staff have been working hard on assessing Mallee parks to determine when they’re safe to reopen, he said.
“Assessments of Wyperfeld National Park and Lake Albacutya Park have been completed this week and we’re pleased to be able to reopen areas of the park.”
“Wyperfeld National Park and Lake Albacutya Park are very popular parks in the Mallee, and there are plenty of things for people to do this weekend, including camping, bushwalking and four wheel driving.”
“People will see the impacts of the recent fires in these parks. Some popular campgrounds such as Snowdrift and OTIT are closed however there are other places for people to camp, including Western Beach, Wonga and Casuarina camping areas.
Mr Antonysen said visitors should refer to signs advising of road and track closures and should refrain from entering sites that remain closed.
“We want people to be out and active in the parks, but safety is the first priority.”
Murray Sunset National Park, and Bronzewing and Paradise Flora and Fauna Reserves have also been re-opened to visitors in time for Labour Day long weekend.
Red Bluff Flora and Fauna Reserve remains closed.
Visitors can access up to date information on what areas of parks are open here or by calling the Parks Victoria Information Centre on 13 1963.
