Snowy River reopens for watercraft this Easter

Monday 7 April, 2014

Parks Victoria has reopened the Snowy River for watercraft prior to the Easter and school holidays. 

District Manager Will McCutcheon said the majority of the Snowy River National Park will remain closed due to the impact of the recent fires.

“We encourage anyone looking for an adventure this Easter to contact a licensed tour operator and experience the iconic Snowy River,” said Mr McCutcheon.

Mr McCutcheon said there were plenty of options for people looking to get out and enjoy Victoria’s parks over the Easter holidays with other park areas reopening following the fires.

“Lind National Park has re-opened to visitors. Some areas of the Snowy River National Park, Errinundra National Park, and Tara Range National Park have also re-opened.”

“Visitors should refer to signs advising of road and track closures and avoid entering sites that remain closed.”
