Walking across Australia’s roof – Snowies Iconic Walk

By December 3, 2020April 2nd, 2021No Comments

The Snowies Iconic Walk project proposes a world class, multi-day trek across the alpine roof of Australia, in Kosciuszko National Park.

Featuring remote days and comfortable nights, the 44 kilometre walk will extend existing walks across the park’s spectacular alpine area to link the resorts of Thredbo, Charlotte Pass, Guthega, Perisher and Lake Crackenback. The walk will also cross over the summit of Mount Kosciuszko.

The walk has great potential to become a landmark ‘must-do’ experience for both domestic and international tourist markets.

Update 30/03/2021

NPWS are currently in the planning and design phase to make improvements to the Illawong track head and carpark area at Guthega.

We would like to keep you updated as we move through this process.

7 different areas within the track head project are proposed to be investigated and resolved by a design team. These include:

Area A:  Possible toilet location connected to mains water and sewer.

Area B: Vehicle turning and drop off area, parking to possibly be limited to disabled and a maintenance vehicle only

Area C:  Walker gathering area away from vehicle drop off area. Furniture, possible small shelter, signage etc

Area D: Possible viewing/gathering area that leads to the walking tracks,

Area E:  Linkages to the Guthega main carpark, simple paving or line marking to define a walker strip next to existing road. It is anticipated that with increased visitation users will park vehicles in main Guthega carpark. Opportunity to drop walkers off at track head but will vehicles will need to park at main carpark.

Area F: Linkage to the walking tracks, Illawong track and soon to be complete Snowies Iconic Walk.  Possible rock paving or similar to provide hard wearing track surface.

Area G: Linkage to the resort accommodation, possible steps up embankment to resort accommodation.
