Title: Snowy Plains to Kidmans Hut (overnight camp)
Skills:  
Terrain:  
Distance:  
Description:

The sub alpine parts of the park are at their most splendid in early summer when the shrubs are in full flower.  While skiing in this area is a hit and miss affair the walk will familiarise us with the rebuilt Davies hut on lower Snowy Plains pioneered by the Boltons family.  There were once 13 families eeking a living out of the Snowy Plains area before the Park was declared.  The walk will visit the site of Snowy Plains House, the principle homestead once on the plains and even the venue for local dances.  We will then follow the fire trail till it intersects the trail to Brassy Gap, once the route for re-supplying the Alpine Hut in its heyday.  The track then drops down into the upper reaches of the Burrungubuggee River to the tiny Kidman’s hut, which is a skiing destination in winter from the Bulls Peaks.  The vehicle track into Snowy Plains is a bit rough and more suited to those with 4wd or awd vehicles if wet.  (Due to other commitments in December, the preferred time for this trip is anytime during the last week of November up until 6 December).

It would help planning if those interested could register well in advance with the nominated trip leader so that the dates and transport could be agreed to suit both the weather and member’s preferences.
