Eastern Pastoral District

Lilydale Road - Hogback Lane to Braemar is passable for 4WD vehicles to Weir Creek

Lilydale Road  at Weir Creek is closed due to creek flooding.  It is anticipated that it may be up to 4 weeks before a detour can be installed to open Weir Creek.

Public Access Routes

Public Access Routes (PARs) are established under the Pastoral Land Management and Conservation Act 1989 (the PLMC Act) to provide public access over pastoral land without the need for travellers to ask permission from the lessee. Any travel other than that on a public road or PAR requires prior approval from the lessee of the respective pastoral lease.

Pursuant to section 45(7) of the PLMC Act, the Pastoral Board may temporarily close a PAR for the purposes of the safety of the public, the management of stock or the carrying out of rehabilitative work on land adjacent to the route.

PARs are not roads or part of the formal road network. They are unimproved and unsurfaced dirt tracks intended to provide four-wheel drive access in dry conditions only. All PARs are currently OPEN unless listed below.  Drive to track conditions with caution.
