Popular site Raymond Creek Falls has reopened!
Monday 28 October, 2013
The popular tourist attraction, Raymond Creek Falls, located within the Snowy River National Park has reopened in time for the spring holidays, following works to repair damage caused by storms and flooding.
Parks Victoria Ranger Lisa Brooks said: "The storm and flooding event in June 2012 caused extensive damage to the main access road (Moorsford Road), the campground and the walking track to the falls. Many trees fell during the storm and sections of Moorsford Road washed away restricting access to the Raymond Creek Falls site."
"Teams from Parks Victoria and Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) along with local contractors had worked tirelessly to repair the damaged access road, clearing trees and undertaking repairs to the campground over the past 12 months, "Ms Brooks said.
"Unfortunately a second storm hit the area in June 2013 washing away sections of the newly repaired Moorsford Road."
"Despite the delays caused by the storm events, the road repairs have now been completed and staff are delighted that Raymond Creek Falls has been reopened in time for the spring holidays."
"The falls are accessible from the Raymond Creek Falls campground which offers limited parking for day visitors and is a comfortable 2km walk suitable for all fitness levels."
"The Raymond Creek Falls site remains 2WD accessible and is only 45 minutes from Orbost, so it is an ideal day trip for walkers and a great picnic spot for families."
