Bullocks walking track is a 2.5km, grade 3 One Way hike located in the Kosciuszko National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 45mins to complete.
Starting from Thredbo Diggings campground or Bullocks Flat SkiTube carpark, this short track meanders alongside the Thredbo River and takes around an hour each way or 30mins if you’re riding.
Along the way, you’ll pass historic Bullocks Hut and be treated to views of rocky mountain ranges that are often capped with snow. If you bring your fishing gear there are plenty of spots to stop and try your luck catching one of the many trout here. The glassy waters of the river are so clear you’re likely to spot fish swimming their way upstream.
Wallabies and kangaroos are also a common sight along the track and, during spring, wildflowers such as the yellow bossia and purple hovea are in bloom. Be sure to keep a look out too for platypus in the pools around dawn and dusk.
Return the same way or loop back to your start point on the Thredbo Valley track, which can also be accessed from both the campground or carpark. From Bullocks Hut, you can also continue along a 1.4km track to Lake Crackenback.
