Getting there

Let someone know before you go

It’s a good idea to let someone know where you’re going. Fill in a trip intention form to send important details about your trip to your emergency contact. If you are lost or require help and have phone reception, call 000 and ask for police. The international standard emergency number is 112, if you dial this number in Australia you will be treated exactly the same as a 000 call. If you believe your life is at risk, activate your personal locator beacon (PLB), then make your position visible to rescue teams and keep warm and dry.

    We did Bon Accord downhill
    It’s treacherous
    Doesn’t live up to the meaning of its name…
    I was ready to punch anyone who told me it’s easy in the mouth ??

      great hike! I have lost count how many times I have done this one!

    2. Hi Sharlene. We are hiking to Mt Feathertop this weekend via Bungalow. What was the water supply like around Federation hut ? Was the water in the springs ?

      Cheers !

    3. i am happy to be able to help, as i went through the rigmarole of taking off my boots and gaiters so that i could cross the river, and then shortly discovered that it was completely unnecessary! also taking trekking poles or finding a stick to add a bit of balance when going over the trunk is recommended.

      Luka Seradi ditto!!! Never enjoyed a beer so much in life as I did after that slog!!!

    7. Just a heads up that some of the signage at the beginning of the trail still marks a camping spot next to the bridge on the Bon Accord, about 5k out from Harrretville, but it has since been washed away.

      I hiked Bungalow spur to federation hut, then along the Razorback ridge earlier this year. It was spectacular (even in foggy weather)…

    10. just went there last weekend, and no, the bridge is still not completely fixed. about 100m north (or downstream) of where the remains of the bridge are there is a large tree trunk that can be used to cross the river. follow the orange track markers to find it.

      Love it.

    12. Stevie Florent

      Was thinking overnighter 🙂

    13. Would this be okay to complete in a day? Assuming you hiked from early morning and didn’t have heavy packs to slow you down (aside from water and food).
