Explorers can now trek from Guthega village to Charlotte Pass through Monero Ngarigo Country across a newly-opened 9km trail in Kosciuszko National Park. 


This is the first section of the soon-to-open Snowies Alpine Walk, a new multi-day hike coming to the national park that’s expected to be completed by late 2023. 

The newly opened trail treks through high country plains and across the highest elevated suspension bridge in Australia, at 1627m above sea level, over Spencers Creek. 

The trail features sections of elevated steel walkways to help protect the alpine bogs and threatened species within the sensitive alpine environment.


Snowies Alpine Walk

The Snowies Alpine Walk that’s set to be completed by late next year, will offer Explorers a 55km, four-day hike that’ll link together Guthega, Charlotte Pass, Perisher, and Bullocks Flat through a combination of new and existing tracks.

The hike is hoping to encourage more year-round visitation to the national park, however it won’t be accessible from June to October as the area will be snowbound. 

The next stage of the walk, Charlotte Pass to Perisher via Porcupine Rocks, is currently under construction and set to open by early 2023!
