Hike Summary

Enjoy the exquisite scenery and fascinating alpine heritage along Round Mountain Hut walking track. Starting from the signposted trackhead off Swampy Plains Road, this short summer Snowy Mountains walk takes you through a beautiful subalpine habitat into Jagungal Wilderness Area.
The corrugated iron hut boasts historic remnants from yesteryear and makes a scenic spot for a picnic, before you head back along the same track.
Time your visit with wildflower season, when the walking track comes alive with buttercups, billy buttons, waxy bluebells and daisies. If you’re walking between April and October, take a good look at the olive-barked black sallee trees – their star-shaped clusters of flower buds are simply beautiful.
