Sat 31 Oct, 2020   Trip Away: Western Snowy Mountains 2020

Leader: Graham Burgess    View Leaders List

31 Oct – 6 Nov, Sat-Fri.

It’s the 22nd anniversary for this trip and it will be a trip like no other given the situation in Kosciuszko NP and surrounds. Some of the regular walks have been heavily impacted by fire, some Snowy huts and other infrastructure destroyed but others not, so we’ll need to carefully select which areas to visit. Importantly we will have the opportunity to survey and learn what’s doing with recovery of the landscape by then while offering support to the impacted communities of the region. Base at caravan park with camping, powered site or cabin options. Joint trip with NPA, combined limit applies. Contact leader for more trip detail.
