Transport information

$192 per car. Each car will also need to purchase a two-day Parks Pass which is $34 for the two days which makes the car rate $226. Lift pass is $52 per person. We will purchase our lift passes when we arrive at Thredbo Village. Do not prepurchase your pass online in case the weather forces us to cancel. We will aim to be at Thredbo Village by close to 10 am and at the top of the Chairlift by 11 am.

Accommodation information

Because this is an alpine walk you will need good weather proof gear and a good tent and sleeping bag. We are completely exposed to the weather so a good shell with warm layers is essential. Thermals, gloves, beanie and the rest. Do not wear any cotton clothes as this is dangerous in cold, wet weather. This is not a difficult walk but the terrain and altitude can make it challenging if the weather turns. If you need advice on what to bring please contact me well beforehand.


A multi day backpacking or base-camping activity with overnight gear required.
