Australian Alps Walking Track is a 650km, grade 4 One Way hike located in Namadgi National Park ACT. The hike should take approximately 49 days to complete.

Summary

A 650 kilometre trail that winds through the high country of south eastern Australia, linking this ancient mountain landscape. It traverses rugged remote alpine country where bushwalkers must be experienced and self-reliant. The track climbs our highest mountains and crosses exposed grassy high plains. It passes through magnificent tall forests and stunted snow gum woodlands, and discovers sites rich in history.

Most people choose to walk shorter sections of the trail such as the Baw Baw Plateau, Mount Howitt and the Cross Cut Saw, the Bogong High Plains, Mount Kosciuszko and the wilderness areas of Jagungal and Bimberi. To plan your trip view the detailed track notes. http://www.theaustralianalps.wordpress.com/experience/aawt/
