Forming the largest area of mountainous alpine country in the nation, the Australian Alps extend from Canberra and the nearby Brindabella range, through the Snowy Mountains of New South Wales and along the Great Dividing Range to the northeast of Melbourne. More than ten peaks in the alps exceed 2100 metres, including Mt Kosciuszko, Australia's highest mountain at 2228 metres.

The 655 kilometres Australian Alps Walking Track generally follows ridges and high plains through some of the highest country in Australia and is mostly remote from any settlement. You can walk the track in ten weeks, but many people choose to walk shorter sections such as Baw Baw Plateau, Bogong High Plains and the Jagungal Wilderness.

Please note: before exploring the Alps, walkers must obtain detailed maps of their chosen walking area including a copy of "Alpine Walking Track" by J. Siseman.

Does not cater for people with access needs.
