Many roads and tracks are seasonally closed to vehicle traffic each year. These tracks are closed to vehicles for visitor safety, to maintain water quality and prevent erosion during the wetter months as rain and snow softens the tracks, making them vulnerable to damage.
Seasonal road closures generally operate from the long weekend in June through to the end of October, but may be extended due to seasonal conditions.
The majority of seasonal road closures for 2019 have finished. However, some tracks extend past the general closure period up until mid-December.
A list of maps showing tracks that have had closures extended and are remaining closed is available here
Please check if there are any affected tracks in the area you are visiting before you go.
