The Goldfields Track travels through some of central Victoria's most beautiful landscapes. It is a natural track and that means it can be affected by the course of mother nature, and is subject to special activities to help keep the area safe.
This page is designed to keep you informed of activity taking place to maintain the track and surrounding areas that may impact your Goldfields Track experience. Please note, while we do our best to keep this page up-to-date, there are times when incidents happen and land managers (such as Parks Victoria) need to act quickly. If you come across any areas of concerns, track closures or maintenance needs that are not documented on this page, please send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can work with the relevant land managers to address the issue.
Thank you, and we hope you have a fantastic time on the Goldfields Track.
June 2021 - Parts of the Goldfields Track closed due to storm damage
The storm in June 2021 caused extensive damage to the area. Parks Victoria have been working very hard to make the area safe and accessible.
The most recent update (1 Sep) is as follows:
All main visitor sites in the park are open included Tipperary Springs, The Blowhold, Sailors Falls and Mt Franklin (Lalgambook).
The Goldfields Track north of Twin Bridges, Tipperaray Walking Track, Sailors Falls Loop and Argyle Springs Walk are open.
The Goldfields Track South of Old Ballarat Road, through to Sailors Falls remains closed.
The area south of the Midland Hwy from Twin Bridges to Telegraph Rd at Sailors Falls to Telegraph Road at Sailors Falls remains closed.
Works are continuing in these areas, clearing tracks and moving trees. The recent wet weather had delayed works as the wet tracks prevent safe access for crews. Work will continue when conditions are safe to do so.
Please keep away from the closed areas to ensure the works can continue as quickly as possible. We thank Parks Victoria for their continued hard work to open the tracks as soon as they can.
Keep an eye on the Hepburn Regional Park page on the Parks Victoria website for more and updated information.
