Southern Access Road to Falls Creek Re-opened

The southern access route from Omeo and Mitta Mitta to Falls Creek has now re-opened for all vehicles to access.

Please note the road between Falls Creek Village and Trapyard Gap has been cleared of snow but all vehicles are advised to drive with caution as patches of ice and snow drifts along the road are still prevalent.

Falls Creek Alpine Resort (FCAR) continues to operate under the Fall Creek Emergency Management Plan, and we are required to know who is in the resort in the case of an emergency situation, so you can be notified. Therefore, we ask anyone intending to visit/stay in the resort over the next two months to continue register their intention to visit via the Visitor Registration Form.

It is also important to note that response times for emergency service in Falls Creek are currently greatly delayed as they need to come from Omeo, which is 2 hours away.

Falls Creek Foodworks
The supermarket is operating as follows: The supermarket will be open on Monday and Thursday from 11:30am to 1pm
The opening hours may differ slightly if travel time by staff to the resort is delayed at all.

Foodworks ask you to place an online order for fresh fruit, vegetables and other perishables such as bread and milk. An order can be placed via the Foodworks Website by the end of day Thursday for delivery on Monday or end of day Tuesday for delivery on Thursday.

Orders will be available for collection at the store in Falls Creek during the operating hours noted above. All deliveries are free of charge while the road closure is in place, only a pick & pack fee will be applied.

The delivery vehicle is a refrigerated vehicle but not a freezer unit therefore, frozen items should only be ordered if consumed as per the manufacturer’s guidelines once thawed.

If you are planning to visit Falls Creek, please either bring your own food to last the duration of your stay, or pre-order and pick up only within the store opening hours.

Please share this with others intending to travel to Falls Creek Resort for their information and consideration.

Further public notices will be available on the Regional Roads Victoria website.
