Has anyone been into Selwyn creek and the Humffray river area in winter. Interested in knowing what some of the roads are like at this time of year. And yes I'm talking about the roads that are open, and the maps show about half the roads in that area are open.

Also whats this area like after the fire went through.

not too sure on track closures check DSE ROAD CLOUSURES
but was a nice easy ride at easter .
recent rains will make it slippery and greasy.
check maps again on exit /entry points before everything turns to poo just in case

Buckland Valley , Barry Mountains & Wonnangatta
Buckland Valley State Forest

Salvage harvesting will occur on State Forest in this area, so expect roadworks and numerous log trucks on roads and tracks. The following roads are closed temporarily until November 2005 to control access for public safety in the vicinity of areas of salvage harvesting operations).

Buffalo Range Track ( Mt Selwyn Road to Schultz Track) (Alternative access via Schultz, Twins Creek and Yarrabuck Tracks or Walshs Track).
Helipad Ridge Track ( Mt Selwyn Road to Buffalo Range Track (Alternative access via Schultz, Twins Creek and Yarrabuck Tracks or Walshs Track).
Tea Tree Range Track ( Mt Selwyn Road to Tea Tree Range Road ) (Alternative access via Mrt Selwyn Road and Tea Tree Range Road ).
Humffray State Forest

West Humffray Road - southern end is open but the section between Selwyn Track and East Buffalo Road remains closed until further notice. West Humffray hut site is also closed until further notice.

The salvage harvesting would not be running in winter now would it. Most logging areas stop over winter as its too wet etc.
