    The cool kids may have already seen this but it is new to me. When they say chains required 'from the Wattles' (or the Loading Ramp, etc) in the road conditions report, have you ever wondered where they are talking about?

    Now you know.



    There is one for Kosciuszko Rd as well.

    Hi shabu, where did you grab that from? I Might remind some folks to advertise it more broadly again.

    So do Wild Brumby pay to have a reference point named after them. ;)

    Awesome publicly to be mentioned several times a day in the road reports. :thumbs:

    Probably more obvious and less confusing than the previous Crackenback cottage.

    I found it as a link on the alpine conditions report for the current Alpine Way closure on the left hand side.

    Hope this works:
