Four Wheel Drive Victoria have been notified of a Temporary Park Closure for access to Triplet and Little Aire Falls within the Great Otway National Park
The closure will occur from 9 – 31 March 2021. This period is from the day after Labour Day and ends before the Easter weekend.
The linking tracks of Youngs Creek and Brown Town Track to these sites will also need to be closed to allow essential road works to occur.
Conditions in parks can change quickly. Please always check Parks Victoria’s website www.parks.vic.gov.au and the change of conditions and closures page before visiting parks.
Firewood collection maps are now available online ffm.vic.gov.au/firewood
Firewood can be collected at nominated collection areas for domestic use, no permit required. You can only take fallen or felled wood and are not to damage standing trees (including dead ones) or collect logs that are visibly hollow or growing moss or fungi.
If you have information about firewood being illegally removed or sold, please report it to us on 136 186.
Four Wheel Drive Victoria urges Firewood collectors across Gippsland to start planning their firewood needs as part of the opening of the autumn collection season.
From 1 March designated firewood collection areas will open across Victoria, allowing communities to gather wood for personal use.
Four Wheel Drive Victoria have been made aware that Forest Fire Management Victoria (FFMVic) is continuing its planned burning program across north east Victoria to reduce the risk of bushfires on communities.
Above average rainfall and mild temperatures have provided favourable forest conditions for planned burning to ramp up as we head into Autumn.
Four Wheel Drive Victoria has been advised that Parks Victoria, and, in joint managed parks, Gunaikurnai Lands and Water Aboriginal Corporation (GLaWAC), will be continuing its coordinated deer and feral animal control program in fire-affected areas across Eastern Victoria from March to June 2021.
