The Mt Zero Rd (North) in Victoria's Grampians National Park will re-open on Saturday morning for the weekend, providing visitor access along the north eastern boundary of the park.

Parks Victoria says considerable progress is being made towards the reopening of fire affected areas of the Grampians National Park.

The rehabilitation of dozer-lines created during the suppression (fire-fight) phase is now complete,along with the treatment of trees that presented a clear and immediate risk to park users and staff along park roads. Trail crews are completing tree risk and soil stabilisation works along walking tracks affected by the fire. Major trail works are commencing in the Hollow Mountain and Stapylton Amphitheatre to improve climbing access.

The September school holidays is the next major milestone for a number of projects including;

The re-opening of MacKenzies Falls car park with access to the base of the falls (no kiosk facilities).

The re-opening of the Stapylton Amphitheatre climbing area from Mt Zero car park.

The re-opening of the Hollow Mountain car park with limited climbing access in Summerday Valley climbing area.

Planning and the engagement of project partners, for the delivery of other park improvements is under way.

In January 2014, a lightning event caused a large bushfire that swept through the northern area of

theGrampians National Park. Roads, walking tracks and visitor sites in the central, southern, western and eastern side of the Park have reopened (please see map attached).

In the northern area, there was significant damage to the park and infrastructure, including MacKenzie Falls, Mt Difficult, Mt Stapylton and Hollow Mountain walking and rock climbing areas. These sites are still closed and will take time to repair.

But all other areas in the park are open to visitors including Mt Zero to the north.
