Breaking News

We are taking bookings at Buller for Hut2Hut Thursday 13 – Sunday 16 February 2020 inclusive. Here is the Accommodation Booking Form Hut2Hut 2019-Booking-Form (2)

NSW Lodges Open over Summer

The Board has decided to trial a short period over Christmas and New Year where Perisher and Thredbo lodges will be open with a Manager so members can make normal booking requests.  During these periods, you cannot make All of Lodge bookings.  Individual bed nights may be booked through the Booking Officer on 02 6295 6634.

The RFS and NPWS have announced that Guthega Road is now open to the village and some further walking tracks within the park will open as of Wednesday 22 January. NOTE: All walks are for day use only and NO backcountry camping is permitted until further notice. 

This means that there is now full access to Thredbo, Perisher Valley, Smiggin Holes, Charlotte Pass and Guthega, and overnight stays are permitted for both lodge owners/managers and their members/visitors. Alpine Way remains closed from Thredbo to the Victorian border, along with some walking tracks, trails and campgrounds (particularly in northern areas of the park).

The RFS and NPWS are continuing their risk assessments, however, there are many areas in Kosciuszko National Park that cannot yet be opened. A staged approach is being implemented to progressively open more areas when safe. For further updates, please check the alerts page on the National Parks website at https://www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au/alerts/alerts-list
