New Year on Australia's Rooftop

Trip type: 
Start date: 
Saturday, 29 December 2018 - 6:00am to Tuesday, 1 January 2019 - 9:00pm

Slightly different to Yushu's trip in January, and depending on the pace and weather, we will walk as far south as Ram's Head before returning to Charlotte Pass via Seaman's Hut along the Australian Alps Walking Track (AAWT). We will walk along the Main Range from Charlotte Pass via Blue Lake Walk to Mt Twynam and Little Twynam where we camp for the first night. The next day we will return to Blue Lake Walk via Little Twynam and back to the Main Range towards Muellers Peak and Mt Townsend and down toward Wilkinson's Creek to camp. The third day we will climb Mt Kosciuszko and on towards Rams Head along the main range before rejoining the AAWT to Seamans Hut. The final day we will walk back to Charlotte Pass from Seamans Hut along the AAWT. 

Total will be about 35-40km. We will camp somewhere near Little Twynam, Wilkinson's Creek and Seaman's Hut on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd nights, respectively. On the 3rd night, we will have a small feast to celebrate NYE.
