  • Does anyone know of any issue with this GPX?

    I imported it into my garmin connect and it only uploaded from Walhalla to O’Sheas Mill.

    Have just completed the mid section from Mt Hotham to Thredbo. Just great satisfaction and elation. Will be back to do the Walhalla-Hotham section in November and final section Thredbo to Thawa in March/April 2018. Can you tell me if there is a badge, either cloth or metal – which can celebrate the track. I would like one for my collection of completed tracks. Details of contact, price, etc. would be appreciated. Many thanks. Sue Curtis.

      Hi Ben. Great question. The following waypoints are identified by letters:
      H: Hut
      W: Water
      C: Campsite

      Do let me know if I missed any.

    3. Hi,
      in the GPX file is there a key for what each letter means? For example I think the checkpoints you have the letter H is for Hut, W is for water etc…

      It is a tough hike over that distance in any weather. Winter certainly would not be recommended for the entire length but shorter sections would be enjoyable if you have the necessary experience.

      No problem Susan. I sent you an email and will try to get this one on mys site soon

      Well done, that’s an awesome effort. There is no badge or certificate available to my knowledge. Your best bet would be to contact Parks Victoria and see if they have any such program.
