Four Wheel Drive Victoria have been advised by DELWP that Lady Talbot Drive near Mount Margaret Gap should be opening today in time for the weekend. This should also give access to Keppells Hut subject to further inspection later today. The lower section of Lady Talbot Drive near Marysville will remain closed until Parks Victoria have cleared all the fallen trees. Access at this stage is only from the top end via Mount Margaret gap.

This area is substantially affected by dead fire burnt Mountain Ash trees that continue to randomly fall across the tracks so visitors are advised to be prepared to turn around if a tree blocks access.
