Road conditions can change quickly when dangerous weather occurs. In some cases, roads are closed and detours are set up to guide you around incidents to keep you away from danger or to clear a hazard from an area. Our summer months in particular bring rain, cyclones and unstable weather conditions, at times resulting in flooded roads. Our winter months bring hazardous bushfire conditions where roads can be cut off in an instant.
The following Department of Transport and Main Roads website will help you prepare in case of an emergency, whether it’s mapping out an alternative route or assisting you to make travel decisions.
