Rennix walking track

"This walking track changes throughout the year, so we love to walk it a few times to see the wildflowers in spring and snow in winter."

Rennix walking track crosses several small, forested ridges and offers scenic views over Snowy River to the west, as well as Lake Jindabyne to the east. Seasoned hikers and casual walkers will love the challenging walk up a shallow valley through subalpine meadows. The changing scenery spans all the way to dramatic boulder outcroppings at the turning point, called Giants Castle.

From Giants Castle, it’s a return journey, so you can find a place to picnic, pull out your binoculars and settle down for a leisurely afternoon with a spot of birdwatching.

If you’d like to visit in winter, be sure to bring your snow shoes as the track gets covered in a thick blanket of snow. There aren’t many experiences quite as invigorating as a walk through the snow, and this track allows you to fully immerse yourself in the experience.

Wildflowers bloom along the track between January and Easter, adding an array of vibrant colours to your bushwalking adventure – from yellow yam daisies to purple trigger plants and cream candle heath.
