Changed Road Conditions

South Face Road

For the purposes of the Road Management Act 2004, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) is the coordinating road authority responsible for the management of roads in State Forests. This normally includes South Face Road. 

However, Council wishes to utilise South Face Road for tourism opportunities with respect to the Baw Baw resort during the winter period (1 June to 30 September 2018). For this reason, the road will be maintained by Baw Baw Shire Council (rather than DELWP) for the duration of this period.

Baw Baw Shire Council will maintain South Face Road at its current maintenance standards as set out in Council’s Road Management Plan.

During this time, any maintenance requests can be addressed to Council via Snap Send Solve, Live Chat (during business hours), email, web form, Facebook Messenger (during business hours) or phone on 5624 2411 (24 hours, 7 days a week).
