- Anchor Stampers Visitor Site - Heavy rainfall in the east of the state has forced the closure of Anchor Stampers visitor site (posted 21/04/11)
- Meander Falls Road - Heavy rains and flooding have washed away two bridges on the Meander Falls Road. The lost bridges are over the Mother Cummings Rivulet and the other over the Meander River. This was the only road access to the Meander Falls Track, Split Rock Track, Dickson's Track, Stone Hut Track, Croft Track, Bastion Cascade Track and the Meander Picnic Area. A temporary alternative route to the Meander Falls Track car park has been opened but this is a four wheel drive only track and is likely to be closed in wet weather. - This road is an important access for bushwalkers to the Meander Forest Reserve World Heritage Area. FT is looking at options to reopen two wheel drive access to these areas.
