Couple of the boys thought it might be a short cut from the track back to the depot next to the road bridge, came to same conclusion couple hrs later.I walked up Spencer's as a teenager from Twynam after a long weekend of skiing. I never repeated the effort.
Could tell you officially but Illawong track closed until May 28, so I'd assume a spring opening for Stage 2. Bridge should be done in a couple days then it's just us to finish bridge approach stonework.When will this walk be able to be completed by the public ?
Thanks for keeping us updated, has been great to watch it progressYup, could have skinned it. Good for touring with little snow.I'm done for the season, couple weeks on the farm at Goonellabah and then back for winter work. Happy days. Thanks for the comments/discussion.
Amateurs at work !Walk way is not the best look ....they should have called in Team Bears as consultants!Suppose you will have clean boots .....any pull over lanes when Mt Bikes are flying through?That looks like a twisting stem failure from wind or snow loading. Walkway would have arched under beautiful old gum, unfortunately they have had to cut it off after falling on walkway.
Finishing cuts on failed stem can be done in such a way they are much more 'naturalised' & will quickly blend into an 'age' feature on tree. That type of cut requires significantly more skill & time than standard pruning cuts though & is unlikely a track crew would be carrying the ideal saw for that job.
The Australian Government will provide $10 million to deliver Stage 4 of the Snowies Iconic Walk, helping showcase an iconic part of the Australian landscape... The 11 kilometre trail from Perisher Valley to Bullocks Flat will complete the 55-kilometre multi day walk experience, linking the walk to premium accommodation options and further transport connections.
Someone in Sinee looked at the map and saw a train station and went oohh goodie a transport link, we’ll loop the track down this easy looking hill face to there.Premium pleased!
Its a bit of a weird detour.
