Resources, maps and groups

AUSTRALIAN ALPS WALKING TRACK:

Australian Alps Walking Track. Formerly called the Alpine Walking Track, the ‘Australian Alps Walking Track’ is a long route that passes through the mountains of Victoria and New South Wales. It is primarily a wilderness style walk as it passes through natural landscapes and there are no major facilities. The following are a series of notes from author John Chapman as well as a link to his book on walking the track.

Australian Alps Walking Track – a great pictoral diary from John & Lyn Daly.

Photodiary of a Nomad. “We are two not-quite grey nomads who have recently retired / changed careers / entered the third phase of our lives”. The Alps section contains a very detailed diary of walking sections of the AAWT.

MOUNTAIN & ROAD BIKE RIDING:

For a listing of mountain bike clubs in north east VIC check here.

For maps for mountain bike riding in NE Vic check here.

The climbing cyclist is a great guide to the best of the cycling climbs in Victoria. As you would expect, the Alps are well represented in the guide.

I really like Bike Beyond, which is a great riding resource and also offers a tour program.

WALKING – GENERAL:

Big Ben’s Victoria. A series of notes and photos from walks in the Victorian Alps.

Link to Open Spaces books, based in Melbourne, who produce a range of guides relevant to the Alps.

    Check out my blog from my AAWT trip earlier this year. Feel free to use it on your page. I MTBed first two weeks and walked last three. Mostly solo, with support along the way.

    Cheers
