This is advance notice for those planning trips.

The ‘Peaks Challenge’ cycle race will be held on Sunday 13 March and as a result there will be extensive road closures in the alpine area at different times of the day. The roads include those linking Falls Creek, Mt Beauty, Tawonga Gap, Mt Hotham, Omeo and the Bogong High Plains Road to Falls Creek. There is also likely to be a lot of traffic in and around Falls Creek all over the weekend.

Precise details of the timing of closures should be available from Falls Creek Visitor Information, but the best idea is to avoid the area entirely for the weekend!

At this stage the road closures will be:

Road closures
  • Front of Falls Closure (ie Mt Beauty to Falls Creek): 5:30am – 9am
  • Tawonga Gap Closure: 7:00am – 10:30am
  • Mt Hotham Closure: 8am – 1pm
  • Back of Falls Closure: 12:00pm – 8:30pm
