Stay Safe in Nature – This Summer is Different!

In response to ongoing flooding and unpredictable weather across the state, Parks Victoria has commenced a new safety campaign for the Christmas holiday period – this Summer is Different!

Current situation

Storm and flood damage to our parks is widespread. Some parks are still underwater, in others the waters have receded but there are significant risks from falling trees, water crossings, flash flooding, pot holes, landslips and more.

There is also significant damage to roads, tracks and visitor facilities managed by Parks Victoria as well as the environment and cultural heritage.

With more weather events expected over the summer period, the emergency is ongoing, constantly changing and challenging.

Parks Victoria’s priority is to keep people safe while visiting parks.

Their key message to people is check the condition of a park before you go and plan your trip accordingly.
