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.
The AAWT – notes from the Australian Alps website. Has some good details on planning trips, including doing sections of the overall route.
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.

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