Grampians Flood update

Following the recent heavy rains and ensuing floods, many of the parks in Victoria have closures in place. Either full closures like the You Yangs or partial closures such as the Grampians.

In regards to the Grampians, a huge amount of the park took a beating Рwith landslides and road collapse hitting the top of the list. Some areas, notably in the Northern Grampians have now reopened. These are predominantly concentrated around the Stapylton area. Below is a basic list of open  areas at the time of writing. This will be changing regularly as more areas are assessed and those with the least damage can be repaired and re-opened.  For regular updates always visit the Parks Victoria website.

Brambuk the National Park and Cultural Centre, and the townships of Wartook, Dunkeld and Halls Gap are all open for business.
Visitors are advised to take caution at this time due to variable track conditions. Drivers should take additional caution at this time.
All other areas in the Grampians National Park are still closed due to widespread flood damage throughout the park.

  1. Is the Pinnacle walk accessible via Wonderland carpark?
    Is MacKenzies Falls walk accessible?
    Is Zumsteins accessible? What about Boronia Lookout and Reid’s Lookout? We have a school group going to Halls Gap area 18-20th May and need to be accurate with our 3 day itinerary. Regards. Ros

  2. Hi Ros. Please check out this link and click on the PDFs for current walking trail updates provided by Parks Victoria. http://www.parkweb.vic.gov.au/1park_display.cfm

    Parks Victoria list all the walks that are open and those that are closed. In a nutshell, Boronia Peak is open. All of the other walks you mentioned are currently closed. Consider taking your school group to the Northern Grampians and basing yourself at Stapylton Campground. Hope this helps.
