|Title:||Introduction to Snowy Plains|
Snowy Plains, comprising much of the catchments of the Gungarlin and Bulls Peaks Rivers is an extensive salient of private land extending into the middle of the Kosciuszko National Park approximately half way between Kiandra and Guthega. It offers superb sub-alpine scenery and often rewards skiers with good nordic skiing opportunities, though this past winter was not forthcoming. Part of its charm is its remoteness which is reinforced by its 4WD access limitation. So the proposed trip, staying or camping at one of the private lodges in the area (Snowy Vale) will be limited by the number of seats available in 4WDs registering for the trip. There will be limited bunks available in the lodge on a first registered / first served basis. The lodge offers full household facilities and the surrounds offer good car camping.
Early December is the prime time for the sub-alpine wildflowers to be in bloom and to enjoy spring coming to the mountains – warm days and cold nights. People can explore the country around Cesjacks Hut in the park and out towards the Bulls Peaks or Jagungal or wander up the delightful Bulls Peaks river towards the privately owned Flanagans Hut.
