Four Wheel Drive Victoria has been advised by Parks Victoria that the Surry Ridge visitor site located in Cobboboonee National Park, was subject to an arson attack to the toilet facility in 2018. Following the fire, assessments determined the remaining structure could not be repaired
and was subsequently demolished and removed.
The site has remained open for day use and overnight camping. However due to continued camping, human waste and the associated litter that has been accumulating in nearby bushland, for public safety, protection of the environment and to maintain the visitor experience, the camp sites will be closed until further notice.
Day use facilities will remain open with visitors directed to nearby toilets if required.
