Wheatley Circuit is a 7.3km, grade 4 Circuit hike located in  New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 3 hrs to complete.

Summary

This snowshoe walk follows a winter-only route. From Perisher Valley you walk up along the Kosciuszko Rd to a gap just past the last ski lift. Here you leave the road to follow the snow pole line up along the Wheatley Link among the snow gums and crossing some open plains. This link leads up to a valley below Porcupine Rocks where you follow the snow poles and valley back down towards Perisher. A great walk for people comfortable on snowshoes and wanting to explore a more remote area near Perisher Valley.
