The map's dated April 2018 and it is correct. Where they show the Diana's Bath Car park is where the gates are. Dianas Bath is approx another Ik past there. I checked it against some old tracks from before the gates were there.

I find that my number plate gets very muddy as soon as I leave the carpark.
It must be special mud there.

In Victoria itís a lose of 3 demerit points and $160 fine for not having you number plate mounted to your bike.
I believe covering your number plate with tap would be worse .

But if your number plates fully visible itís too risky to wheelie past hikers on bushwalking trails in remote parts of national parks

So 2 penalty units $261. Wow what a rip job. I guess venture off the main roads in there it's time to cover the number plate like others have said. Mud should be a passable excuse.

Funny story. Yesterday I was at Mt Mee with a group. There was a bloke unloading and he had gaffer tape over his number plate. I asked him if that was because of the cameras. Blank look.
I asked him if he covered his number plate so he couldn't be identified by the hidden cameras on the horse trails.
But no, it was to avoid paying the toll twice on the Gateeway Bridge.

DV8, good story. I guess that tape serves double duty.

We have that sticky mud down our way as well.
Cause certain forests have locals who put up signs warning of CCTV etc. in the area.

Even though the area looks like state forest that they decided to string up a wire fence and call it their property....
