Australian Alps Walking Track
The 670km Australian Alps Walking Track is undoubtedly the toughest long distance walk in Australia!
It starts (or finishes) in Walhalla, a quaint ex-goldmining town, about 50kms from Moe in Victoria and finishes (or starts) at the Tharwa Visitor Centre, about 35kms south of the Canberra City Centre. There is no public transport to either end of the walking track
The Victorian section is much tougher than the high-country walking in Kosciuszko, especially the section of track (route) through the Razor – Viking Wilderness Area.
The walk is extremely daunting, so most people who want to complete the whole track, end up doing it in shorter manageable sections. Whether you intend to walk the complete track as an ‘end-to-ender’, or take the easier, more popular option of splitting it into manageable chunks, there are three distinct sections to the walk.
Section 1. Walhalla to Mt Hotham
Section 2 Mt Hotham to Thredbo
Section 3 Thredbo to Canberra
The complete track notes, including chapters on planning, water points, food drop points and transport options are included in Take A Walk in Kosciuszko National park.
