1 Wallaby Road CLOSED to all vehicles

Please observe all signs as waterways can rise and fall in a short period of time. School buses, emergency vehicles and council maintenance vehicles are exempt from road closures.


Council appeals to drivers to assist in preventing damage to unsealed roads by choosing alternative routes or waiting until drier conditions prevail. The preservation of our roads are of prime importance.

Driving or walking through flood waters should be avoided since water may be deeper or faster flowing than anticipated and/or the road may have suffered extensive damage hidden beneath the water.

Please note that concessions are possible, on request, for urgent transport activity on routes considered suitable to carry proposed loads. Please contact Council’s Infrastructure and Engineering Department to discuss requirements.
