  • The steep and rocky section of the Deddick Trail, known as the Staircase, between Mount Joan and New Country Creek is in very poor condition.  The track surface in this area is very loose and severely rutted.  Parks Victoria strongly advises that visitors should not attempt to climb the Staircase.  The Deddick Trail should only be driven in a northerly direction from Yalmy Road towards McKillop Bridge. at Snowy River National Park, Thursday 8 February, 2018
  • The Silver Mine Walk is recommended for seasoned walkers with some orienteering skills and should not be attempted without access to the visitor guide, a good map of the area and a compass. at Silver Mine Walking Track, Wednesday 1 February, 2017

The Snowy River is renowned for canoeing and rafting, and this remote park is ideal for those who appreciate magnificent forests, rugged gorges and wild landscapes.

McKillops Bridge is one of the few places with conventional vehicle access to the Snowy River. The Deddick River meets the Snowy just upstream of the bridge and wide sandy beaches with shallow rock pools between the rapids make this a great swimming spot.

Gunaikurnai Joint Management Plan

The Gunaikurnai Traditional Owner Land Management Board (GKTOLMB) are currently developing a Joint Management Plan in consultation with Parks Victoria and the Department of Environment Land, Water and Planning. The plan will cover the ten parks and reserves for which the Gunaikurnai have gained Aboriginal Title as a result of the 2010 Traditional Owners Land Management Agreement.

The plan will supersede any existing plans and set out objectives for achieving sustainable management within the existing legal framework and in accordance with recognised management principles. It will also provide strategic and operational direction for the ongoing management of these parks and reserves.

Aboriginal Traditional Owners

Parks Victoria acknowledges the Aboriginal Traditional Owners of Victoria - including its parks and reserves. Through their cultural traditions, the Bidawal and Nindi-Ngudjam Ngarigu Monero identify the Snowy River National Park as their Traditional Country.Further information is available from Aboriginal Affairs Victoria AAV and Native Title Services Victoria

The Gunaikurnai Traditional Owners' strong connection with the land has been legally recognised in a settlement agreement that enables them to jointly manage 10 parks in Eastern Victoria, including New Guinea Cave located within the Snowy River National Park.
