$10 million boost to complete 55-kilometre multi-day Kosciuszko walking trail

$10 million boost to complete 55-kilometre multi-day Kosciuszko walking trail
June 11, 2021

The Kosciuszko Snowies Iconic Walk (working title) is being given $10 million from the Australian Government to deliver Stage 4 of the project - an 11 kilometre trail from Perisher Valley to Bullocks Flat.

The first three stages of the Snowies Iconic Walk are currently under construction, delivering 44 kilometres of walking trails and related infrastructure from Guthega to Charlotte Pass, the Main Range loop via Mt Kosciuszko, as well as Charlotte Pass to Perisher.

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.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Michael McCormack said the project will complete the Kosciuszko Snowies Iconic Walk, a world-class walking experience through the internationally recognised tourism destination.

“Set in the NSW Snowy Mountains, the Snowies Iconic Walk will showcase the unique alpine ecosystems of the Kosciuszko summit precinct,” the Deputy Prime Minister said.

“This is all about attracting visitors to the surrounding region, which suffered devastating social, environmental and economic losses in the 2020 bushfires.

Snowy Monaro Regional Council Mayor Peter Beer said that this announcement is welcomed by the community and shows continued investment in the region, adding “this is a key part of a long-term project assisting to lift our visitor numbers in the non-winter months, which all helps to build on our growing year-round visitor economy in the Snowy Mountains and beyond.”

The project will build upon the NSW Government’s $17 million investment in this attraction.

This funding is part of the Australian Government’s commitment of $100 million over two years to fund the Regional Recovery Partnerships in 10 regions across Australia.
