It has been very disappointing to find people have been lighting campfires at various rest areas, any person lighting a fire will be charged with arson offences.
The forest is extremely dry and people who don’t follow the protocols are putting lives and property at serious risk.
If this behaviour continues we will have no alternative but to close the Track indefinitely.
The Park to Park section of the Track is open again as of April 1st. Please check the website for any changes before you set off.
The Track will be affected by logging operations on Taylors Road. Detours have been organised and these will be signposted on the Track. Walkers should obey road traffic control and other Forestry operations signage where it is present. Unless otherwise directed never approach closer than 2 tree lengths to any machinery involved in harvesting operations.
Some work will be done in the area around Road 31 and Road 57 felling fire affected trees. This will last for about 2 weeks. The Track will not be closed during this operation. There will be operatives in radio control with the harvester at each end of the operation and walkers will be stopped at the site entrance while harvesting is halted so they can walk through safely. It will be a delay of only 2- 5 minutes. WALKERS MUST OBEY THE INSTRUCTIONS GIVEN TO THEM.
The new PDF maps are now available through the Avenza Map Store. They will sell for about $10 each. There are two maps – Grand Strzelecki Track West and Grand Strzelecki Track East. The West map covers Morwell N.P. to Balook(Park to Park) and the East map covers the loop walks. Please see the information for walkers page.
All sections of the Track are currently open. However we have had some terrible gales recently so there maybe fallen trees on all sections of the Track. Please let us know if any sections are difficult to get through.
The second (2016) edition of our souvenir walking maps is now for sale (see the shop page). They feature improved accuracy, up to date information on walks and facilities and a selection of new photos. We urge you to be well prepared with these maps if planning an extended walk. 100% of the sale price goes towards the maintenance and development of the Track.
