Parks Victoria: Yarra Ranges National Park
Note: There are seasonal road closures in this area. As at July 2012 some roads and tracks in this park were closed indefinitely due to problems from flooding and bushfires. It is strongly recommended that prospective walkers check the Parks Victoria website and/or contact the local ranger for current information before visiting this park.
Bushwalking Victoria's advocacy efforts aim to proactively influence decisions that impact on bushwalking and bushwalkers in Victoria, by engaging with key decision makers and land managers such as Parks Victoria and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP)to ensure that bushwalking issues and opportunities are understood and considered when policies and decisions are made that impact on the bushwalking community in Victoria.
