Melbourne Launches World-Class Free Wi-Fi Network

From today, visitors can use the VicFreeWiFi service within all Melbourne CBD train stations, the Bourke St Mall, Queen Victoria Market, and South Wharf Promenade at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

More access points will be switched on over the coming months, with the full network to be up and running by the end of the year.

A free Wi-Fi pilot has been running successfully in Bendigo and Ballarat since December 2015 and has recorded one million sessions in the two regional cities during the nine months it’s been operational.

Access will be available for up to 250 MB per device, per day – and does not require personal logins or feature pop-up advertising.

The quality of the network is unparalleled in Australia  and on par with world-class free public Wi-Fi networks in New York, London and San Francisco.

An interactive map of the active access points available for public use is at vic.gov.au/wifi.

Great Ocean Road – Parks Victoria update

The recent weather and high rainfall has resulted in the closure of some visitor areas, tracks and campgrounds in parks across the State’s North and West for visitor safety.

 Only a small number of parks are completely closed. Most parks across the state remain open, however some tracks, campgrounds, lookouts and access roads may be closed.

 Please check for parks affected by flooding here; http://parkweb.vic.gov.au/about-us/news/parks-affected-by-flooding. Information is listed on individual park pages. Use the “Find” navigation button in the top menu bar to search for your nearest park.

The Great Ocean Road remains closed between Cumberland River and Wye River until further notice due to severe structural damage to the roadway, which may fall away under vehicle load.

The section of the Great Ocean Road between Wye River and Skenes Creek is now open to traffic with vehicle restrictions (please find the attached maps).

The road remains closed between Wye River and Separation Creek, due to major landslide issues at Paddy’s Path.  For the latest information on road closures, visit traffic.vicroads.vic.gov.au.
