Access to Werribee Gorge

Does anyone know if access to Werribee Gorge is affected by the recent rain?
This is what it says on Park Victoria's website, not sure if it's up-to-date:

Change of Conditions

I imagine the trails at the bottom of the canyon will need some work. However, Falcon's lookout is up high on the rim it will be fine. You cross two gullies on the walk in, Imagine the trail is beat up, but it is mostly a boulder hop in those sections at the best of times. Just plan a little extra time to walk in. You won't be able to rely on the trail markers being there anymore so if you haven't been there take your GPS or know how to read a topographic map.

After one of the last big rains (last year) there was a mud slide at the top of stairs leading down to the bottom of the climbs. The mud covered the stairs and broke some of the railings. Hopefully there won't be too much damage this time.

If no one reports sooner I'll be there next week and will post what I find.

I went in last weekend (15/1/11). The dirt road in was closed to cars due to water cutting channels across it. But we were able to go over them (slowly) in a mazda 3. Got to the car park and it was full. So everyone had ignored the road closed sign too. Nothing wrong with the walk in, except the stream was flowing better than ever. Just make sure you follow the warn tracks when crossing the river. We had to cross couple of meters down or up stream than before all the rain so the tracks didn't meet up to well. Should be fine now I'm thinking.

Unfortunately not only is access to the cliff still possible, the cliff itself is still standing.
