i though this might be handy
There's also this one on the Parks Vic site. http://www.parkweb.vic.gov.au/resources/mresources/fire/GDR-Access-Strategy.pdf
Some say not often enough, but it is kept fairly regularly updated.
Lol DSE do back burning and loose controll of the fire and then its up to CFA to put them out DSE have no idea lol
here is where will tell you the most up to date news on bushfires road closures etc Statewide Current Incident Summary - Country Fire Authority
I have a scanner stream playing through my windows media player, I can hear what's going on rather than sometimes waiting minutes for the incident reports to be posted up it's handy having both.cfastream Home
Understand it is already well into the road closure season in Victoria, but I thought this might be useful anyway. It is a list, by Forest, of all seasonal road closures in Victoria for the 2009 period.
Great, informative and interesting, don't listen to my scanner since the police encoded their signals.
Interesting.. Thanks for posting the links. Anything like that in NSW?
this is another great site: Public Access Map
Forest Explorer Online
This one has more layers if you want too..Picnicking (Day Visitor), Camping,Trail Biking,Walking Tracks,Four Wheel Driving,Closure Information etc..
As today is the official start of Bush Fire Season, has anybody got any updates to report?
2015 seasonal and early vic track closures
2016. Alpine NP
The southern leg of the W Kiewa logging road has been closed till Xmas or beyond for dangerous tree removal. The gate is just past the 2nd turn off down to the river.
Others have also been closed for the same reason but a quick squiz suggests they aren't open to drivers anyway. See http://www.ukvcommunity.org.au/alpine-national-park-hazard-tree-removal-tracks-closed/
Bushfire in the Crooked River area. Billy Goats Bluff Track closed until further notice. Hopefully no one is effected as the area would be very busy due to the long weekend
Yeah had been watching it unfold on my Vicfire app last night, looks like it's east of the Pinnacles up into McCarthy Spur...
Very dry out there.
I was up there a fortnight ago and it wasn't too bad. Having said that though its been very warm with no rain since which would make a difference for sure. The fire at Castleburn SE of the Crooked River/Moroka fire is increasing in size too
Any body know of a current website that lists road closures in Vic? Am heading down to the vic high country in a months time and want to check if Davies Plain is open, I had heard it was closed last year.
Some info here
Best bet plan trip, call local park ranger. Start. With parks vic bright they will pass the rangers no. On and ask them directly
Still closed, for works.
