Park & Forest Closures
Many of Victoria’s parks and forests are in bushfire prone areas. While they are great places to enjoy, during some weather conditions they are not safe places to be.
Closures due to incidents
For information about park and forest closures due to current fires visit Parks Victoria.
Closures due to Code Red fire danger ratings
On Code Red Fire Danger Rating days, the Department of Sustainability and Environment and Parks Victoria will close parks and state forests to the public.
For your own safety, do not enter parks or forests - and if you are already there, you should leave the night before or early in the morning on a Code Red Fire Danger Rating day. You may not receive a personal warning or see signs telling you that the park or forest is closed.
To check if a park or forest will be closed on a Code Red Fire Danger Rating day, first check the Fire Danger Rating for that area by visiting the CFA website or by calling the Victorian Bushfire Information Line on 1800 240 667.
