The Great Ocean Road is now open and welcoming visitors.

The Wye River – Jamieson Track fire is currently in dense bushland, away from the coast and Great Ocean Road and is not threatening communities. It is expected to burn for some time and it is important that visitors continue to monitor emergency information.

Stay informed by downloading the FireReady app, calling the Victorian Bushfire Information Line 1800 240 667, following CFA and VicEmergency on Twitter or Facebook, listening to ABC local radio, commercial and designated community radio stations or by visiting the VicEmergency website at emergency.vic.gov.au

Parts of the area may be affected by smoke and emergency vehicles are in operation in the region.

Full public access is now possible for Kennett River and Cumberland River, including campers. Visitors are advised that it is safe to visit this area but they must stay up to date and connected with fire information.

Much of the Great Ocean Road region is unaffected by the fire in the landscape.

Visitors are advised that no stopping is allowed between Cumberland River and Wye River bridge, including lookout points and pull-over areas on the sides of the road.

Visitors are welcome and encouraged to visit the Wye River area but are asked to please respect the privacy of residents who may have been impacted by the fire. This includes not taking photographs of fire affected residential areas.

Accredited visitor information centres can assist in helping you plan your journey.
