All road closures are listed and maintained on the VicRoads website  - www.vicroads.gov.au

Mosquito and Insect Hazards

Mosquito's breed well in stagnant waters and so the best advice is to drain any water from containers such as pot plants, tyres, buckets, and roof gutters (if blocked by leaf debris) to control mosquitos around your home / business.

It is also important to protect yourself from mosquito bites by wearing long, loose fitting clothing and by regularly applying repellent (containing Picaridin or DEET) to all exposed skin. 

Useful tips on how to avoid being bitten by mosquitos can be found on the better heath channel: www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/health/healthyliving/mosquitoes-can-carry-diseases     

Animal Hazards

Be aware of snakes that have been sheltering in unexpected places including sheds and homes. If you accidently do get bitten by a snake get immediate medical attention by calling triple zero (000).

Do not approach wild or stray animals.  For advice about dealing with animals contact Council or an animal shelter, as listed below.

For urgent animal welfare issues, contact Agriculture Victoria on 136 186 or your local veterinarian.
