Goldfields and Lerderderg Tracks Re-opening

Following the extreme damage caused by severe storms in June and October 2021, many sections of the Great Dividing Trail Network (GDTN) have been closed pending safety assessment and track clearing.

Several parts of the network have been re-opened in the past few weeks, the only section of the Goldfields Track remaining closed being within Hepburn Regional Park between Telegraph Road at Sailors Falls and the Midland Highway crossing at Twin Bridges.
The Lerderderg Track remains closed from the crossing of Specimen Hill Road south of Paddy Point to Simmons Reef.

Several of the walks described in the latest GDTA publication Central Victorian Highlands Walk and Ride Circuits are also open again after being partly or completely closed in June. Visit for details.

The GDTA thanks the various land managers and their staff for the great amount of work done in restoring the GDTN to a safe and accessible condition for track users.
