Seasonal road closures
Many roads and tracks are seasonally closed to vehicle traffic each year. These tracks are closed to vehicles for visitor safety, to maintain water quality and prevent erosion during the wetter months as rain and snow softens the tracks, making them vulnerable to damage.
Seasonal road closures generally operate from the long weekend in June through to the end of October, but may be extended due to seasonal conditions.
The majority of seasonal road closures for 2018 start on 14 June 2018 and re-open on 1 November 2018 before the Melbourne Cup long weekend. However, some roads and tracks have closed early and some may be extended.
