Travel Exemption to Prepare Your Property for Summer Season

If you live in metropolitan Melbourne but have a property in our Shire and you need to prepare for the flood and fire season, you will need to apply to travel to the Shire for the sole purpose of preparing your property.

Please fill in the form below to apply for access. Please note the information provided may be shared with Victoria Police and other agencies as required under the current restrictions. If accepted, you will be provided with a letter allowing you to travel to the property stated for the sole reason indicated in the form below.

Our officers are prioritising these exemptions (we are receiving a high volume) and will process these forms as quickly as possible – please allow at least 5 business days between your application and being able to travel. Applications received on or after Friday 5 November are not guaranteed to be processed unless the State Government does not ease restrictions. Remember that you may be able to visit your Hepburn Shire property after 5 November, as this is the indicative date under the Roadmap for Regional and Metro areas to come together under the same rules.

Please visit for more information about what you can and cannot do with regards to visiting your property in regional Victoria at this time.

Please allow at least 5 business days between your application and your desired dates for travel to our Shire
