Illawong Walk is a 6.4km, grade 3 Return hike located in Kosciuszko National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 2 hrs 45 mins to complete.


From Guthega village this walk leads you over Blue Cow Creek and alongside the Snowy River to Illawong Lodge and the suspension bridge. You will be using a narrow unsignposted but generally clear track. A flying fox is in place over Blue Cow Creek however a more modern bridge offers a safer path across. This walk takes you to remote (locked) hut on the flat plain beside the Snowy River where the suspension bridge provides great views up and down the valley.
