All vehicles entering the resort areas within Kosciuszko National Park must display a valid park entry pass.

Road closures

 The closure of the following roads from the beginning of the June long weekend to the close of the October long weekend (‘the winter period’), will be subject to snow conditions and arrangements made between the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS), NPWS and ski resort operators.

  • Kosciuszko Road - between Perisher Valley and Charlotte Pass
  • Link Road - between Smiggin Holes and the Guthega Road.

Both road closures are put in place by RMS road occupancy licences, which prevent access by the general public but allow controlled access for key stakeholders.

The following roads will be closed as road conditions require:

  • Kings Cross Road - between Mt Selwyn and Cabramurra
  • Cabramurra Road (KNP 5) - between Cabramurra and Khancoban turn-off. 

Should snow conditions require, these closures may be extended or removed.
