Due to the recent extreme weather, many tracks, trails and recreation sites across Victoria may be unsafe.
Our crews are working hard to assess storm impacts, however, there is a significant risk of falling trees, particularly with the wet and windy weather forecast over the coming days.
Check these websites for more details

From 6 pm Friday 29 October all Victorians can travel to any part of the state, so have a backup in case your destination is crowded or closed. Visit the Victorian Government’s Coronavirus website for up-to-date information.
If you have lost power, it's important to stay safe
- Keep clear of fallen powerlines and keep others away. The powerlines may still be live, so you should call your local electricity distributor.
- Check your neighbour’s house to see if they have also lost power. If your neighbour has power on, then check to see if your safety switch has been tripped.
- Avoid leaving open flames unattended.
- Make sure appliances are turned off (because they could come back on when you are not there).
