Safety alerts: High altitude walks - difficult snowdrift crossings

There are still large snow drifts on the high sections of the high altitude walks (above about 2000m in altitude) in Kosciuszko National Park.  With the existing snow and with alpine weather please note the following information when visiting these areas:

 

General:

Be prepared:

  • Low visibility, extreme winds, severe storms and snowfalls can all occur without warning.
  • Wear and carry appropriate clothing, carry navigation equipment and be prepared for extreme conditions.
  • Track surfaces and signs may not be visible.

Travel with care:

  • Choose your routes carefully
  • Steep and icy terrain can make travel very dangerous.
  • Deep soft spring snow can collapse underneath you - mind your steps.

 

Areas above 2000m, including higher parts of Kosciuszko walk, Main Range walk, Summit walk, Mt Stillwell walk and Hanells Spur walk

Expect short/ steep stretches of snow/ ice cover:

  • Ensure footwear is waterproof, solid and with good grip.
  • Take a map and compass and know how to use them. Sections of tracks will not be obvious and most don't have above snow markers.
  • Take extreme caution when on all steep slopes due to slippery surfaces.

Other planned events: Notice of ongoing 1080 baiting

The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will be conducting a baiting program using baits containing 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of wild dogs and foxes. The program will be continuous and ongoing between 9 August 2022 until 8 February 2023. These programs are part of an integrated pest animal control strategy, aimed at minimising the impacts of these animals on neighbouring stock.

Baiting programs will be conducted in Thredbo/Ingebyra, Dalgety/Paupong and Corrowong/Tombong/Merriangaah Wild Dog Plan Areas. This includes the following sections of Kosciuszko National Park;

  • Thredbo Valley
  • Moonbah
  • Ingebyra
  • Paupong
  • Numbla Vale
  • Corrowong

Baiting programs will also be undertaken in Paupong, Merriangaah and Quidong Nature Reserves.

All baiting locations will be identifiable by signs.

Please be reminded that domestic pets are not permitted on NPWS Estate. Pets and working dogs may be affected (1080 is lethal to cats and dogs). Pets and working dogs must be restrained or muzzled in the vicinity and must not enter the baiting location. In the event of accidental poisoning seek immediate veterinary assistance.

For further information, please call the Jindabyne office on 02 6450 5555.
