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/beginning of November, but may be extended due to seasonal conditions.
2017 Seasonal road closures
The majority of seasonal road closures for 2017 commence on Thursday 15 June 2017 (the Thursday after the Queen's Birthday long weekend in June) and finish on Thursday 2 November 2017 (the Thursday before the Melbourne Cup Day long weekend). Some tracks are subject to early closures and some tracks extend past the general closure period up until the end of November. See the maps below for locations of the closures.
