Roadworks underway at McKenzie Rainforest Walk

Tuesday 12 November, 2013

Parks Victoria wishes to advise visitors that during the next six weeks there will be weekday access disruptions at the McKenzie River Rainforest Walk in the Bemm River Scenic Reserve, between Orbost and Cann River in East Gippsland. The walk is a popular stopping point for motorists on the Princes Highway.

VicRoads is undertaking works to upgrade the wayside stop located at the start of the walk, which will mean closure of the wayside stop and rainforest walk intermittently on weekdays from today.

Parks Victoria Ranger in Charge Darryl Burns said despite these necessary works, access to the McKenzie River Rainforest Walk will not be affected on weekends.

"We thank our visitors for their patience while these necessary road works are undertaken and advise them to check www.parks.vic.gov.au for the latest information", said Mr Burns.
