Sections of Barmah National Park have been temporarily closed after recent rain flooded areas of the park.

Parks Victoria said more than 75mm of rain fell during the past week, causing localised flooding.

Areas affected include Gulf Track, Newmans Track, Farm Track, Agistment Boundary Track, Mill Log Track, Four Mile Track, Sapling Landing Track and River Rd.

This also incorporates the access gates, including Murrays Mill Gate, Hughes Gate and Thorpes Gate.

The flooding has also restricted access to firewood collection areas in the park.

Parks Victoria will reopen the affected areas of the park as soon as it is safe to allow access.

Flooding may affect access to the Murray River camping areas during the Queen’s Birthday long weekend.

Parks Victoria suggests it would be advisable to check local conditions before traveling to parks and reserves.

Visitors can get up to date information by visiting www.parks.vic.gov.au or by phoning 131963.
