Plenty of those around the shires of Knox/Murrundindi/Yrra Ranges etc etc.
The signs also seem to come in all sorts of flavours....from "no through" to "no access" to "residents only" and so on.

Looks like a neat loop there...
Nah these were erected by the plantation lessees not the local shire I'd say, and they're not wishy washy. "no public access in the forest plantation".

That's exactly it.
No public access to the plantation (as in the trees/woods etc)....but the roads through are fine!
If there are white posts, it's a public road and they can shove their signs.

They occasionally close roads up there while they are logging. They 'closed' the top part of Murrindindi road for a month or two while they were logging and they erected gates, but they were always open.

I only nearly got cleaned up my rampaging timber trucks twice, ironically outside of the 'closed' zone.

Mmmmm .......... white posts don't necessarily make it a public road.

You are right Pete, the roads are fine. Went through there a few weeks ago from Narby to the fire tower at Toolangi, no problems. The only time I had a problem a while ago was when they had some orange webbing across the road in the forest somewhere. It fell down and I went over it then put it back up thinking there would be no one there on a Sunday. Came around a corner and I think every bulldozer and logging truck in the area was there! Waved good bye and went back the way I came to find another logging truck at the barrier I had put back up. Gave him a wave and continued. It always helps to cover your number plate with mud before you go in this area as well. Going for a ride there Xmas day (weather permitting) so will report if any changes. Merry xmas everyone
