Mt Abrupt–open Friday 23 December 2011
The Parks Victoria flood recovery crew are very excited to complete works on the Mt Abrupt walking track. This popular walking track in the Southern Grampians, was badly damaged in January 2011 from an enourmous landslide that also caused significant damage to the Grampians Tourist Road. Even though a lot of work has been completed on this track, visitors do need to be aware of the risk of walking in a landslip hazard zone. Parks Victoria recomends that walkers should read the walk description on the attached sheet and to take note of the warning signage along the walking track.

Bundaleer Climbing area – access Stony Creek Road from Glenelg River Road
The Bundaleer climbing area will also open on Friday.  Access to this area is along the Stony creek Road  from Glenelg River Road to Rosea track. From the gate there is a 200m walk to the Bundaleer climbs.

Please note that access from the Silverband Road is not available.

Mt Difficult Road – Closed
Unfortunately Mt Difficult Road received quite a lot of damage from flash flooding early this week. The road will remain closed  from Boroka lookout to Lake Wartook Picnic area until further notice. Access to Lake Wartook and Boroka Lookout is open.
