Many roads and tracks in the mountains are seasonally closed to vehicle traffic each year. These tracks are closed to vehicles for visitor safety, to maintain water quality and prevent erosion during the wetter months as rain and snow softens the tracks, making them vulnerable to damage.

Seasonal road closures generally operate from the long weekend in June through to the end of October, but may be extended due to seasonal conditions.

The Bogong High Plains Road will be closed from Windy Corner (top end of Falls Creek village)  to Shannonvale from 5.00 pm Friday June 9th until the end of the snow season.

All the closures in the Victorian High Country can be found here.
