    River Red Gum Parks
    Due to recent heavy rains and floods, many of Victoria’s River Red Gum parks and reserves along the Murray, Goulburn and Ovens Rivers have been closed to protect visitor safety and minimise track damage.

    Parks Victoria is urging licensed tour operators and visitors to take extreme caution when travelling in the area. Conditions are constantly changing as water levels can rise rapidly due to rain and release from local weirs.
    The following parks and reserves have been closed to protect public safety and minimise track damage.

    • Barmah National Park
    • Lower Goulburn National Park
    • Gunbower National Park
    • Shepparton Regional Park
    • Lower Ovens section of Warby-Ovens National Park
    • Murray River Reserves between Yarrawonga and Cobram, Cobram and Tocumwal, and
    Tocumwal and Barmah

    There is limited access to Murray River Reserves along the river from Barmah to Torumbarry, Gunbower to Swan Hill and from Wodonga to Bundalong.
    The Torrumbary Weir, Wills Bend and boat ramps from Echuca to Torumbarry are open and accessible by 2wd and 4wd.

    Parks Victoria will be working hard to progressively open sections of the River Red Gum parks as water levels recede and as risk assessments are completed by park rangers.
    However, some areas are expected to remain closed for some time due to extensive flood damage to tracks and facilities, or excess water in low-lying areas
    A woodland in full color is awesome as a forest fire, in magnitude at least, but a single tree is like a dancing tongue of flame to warm the heart.
