Please note that Four Wheel Drive Victoria has been alerted that early heavy snowfalls and wet, slippery tracks have created dangerous conditions for 4WD access to some areas of Alpine National Park.
Some tracks including those above 1000 metres are currently impassable due to deep snow, significant tree fall and slippery conditions on steep slopes.
Forecast weather leading into the Queens Birthday Long Weekend indicates further snowfalls and wet, cold conditions. The depth of river crossings may also increase. Vehicles venturing into these areas may become trapped by snowfalls of rising rivers.
It is unlikely that 4WD track conditions will improve prior to the long weekend and visitors are asked to reconsider trip plans to avoid high elevation 4WD tracks, especially 4WD tracks in the Mt Selwyn area, Upper Howqua, Bluff, King Billy, Twins, Howitt High Plains, Dargo High Plains, and Mt Skene.
The Dargo High Plains Rd is currently closed.
Track Closure - Zeka Spur
Zeka Spur Track is closed due to hazardous conditions. A soak has become impassible at the Howitt Road end of the track. Access to Wonnangatta Valley is via Myrtleford and Dargo only.
