Kosciuszko National Park – Thredbo-Perisher area
The National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is currently delivering a record investment in visitor infrastructure in NSW national parks.
Some tracks will be temporarily closed to complete essential maintenance and upgrades during the limited construction season over spring and summer in the Thredbo-Perisher area of Kosciuszko National Park. See the attached information sheet for details.
Most of the planned upgrade works will not require closure of the tracks, but may include traffic control, short diversions and possible delays for helicopter operations. NPWS will attempt to minimise closures and prior notice will be given where possible. There will be limited or no works over the Christmas to New Year period or at Easter.
The Thredbo Valley Track Extension work is funded by the Regional Growth – Environment and Tourism Fund through the Restart NSW program that provides funding for infrastructure that supports regional economic growth, creates local employment opportunities, and drives growth in the visitor economy. These works will increase the sustainability, safety and durability of the mountain bike tracks, enabling them to remain open for longer during the year for visitors.
The walking track works are funded by the NSW Government’s Improving Access to National Parks (IANP) program, a $149.6 million state-wide program of work to improve access to NSW national parks between 2019-20 and 2022-23.
The IANP program is committed to the renewal, improvement and enhancement of park visitor facilities and infrastructure generally, with focus on increasing safety, accessibility and growing visitor demand.
