The Thredbo Valley Track Extension Project will deliver world-class mountain-biking experiences in Kosciuszko National Park. By extending the popular Thredbo Valley Track the project will create 38 kilometres of mountain bike trails that will help establish the region as a summer adventure hub.
Thredbo Valley Track has a fantastic range of options for first-time mountain bikers and family-friendly rides. The newly extended cross-country Thredbo Valley Track turns it up a notch – challenging more experienced riders like never before with 18 kilometres of new adrenaline-fuelled mountain-biking action.
What the project involves
The project involves the construction of 2 new sections of track to extend the existing Thredbo Valley Track.
- Bullocks Flat to Gaden Trout Hatchery: A new 18.4-kilometre section of track following the Thredbo River downstream from Bullocks Flat to Gaden Trout Hatchery, with a new bridge across the Thredbo River, opened in November 2019.
- Gaden Trout Hatchery to Thredbo River Picnic Area on the Kosciuszko Road (2.6km) will be completed in 2022.
Construction of a low mobility path at Bullocks Flat will provide opportunities for everyone to access the Thredbo River and the Bullocks Hut historical precinct.
The project will also fund improvement works to increase the sustainability, safety and durability of the Thredbo Valley Track, as well as new signage and an upgrade to the Thredbo River picnic area.
The track extension has been awarded $9.8 million funding by the Regional Growth – Environment and Tourism Fund program, funded through Restart NSW, that provides funding for infrastructure that supports regional economic growth, creates local employment opportunities, and drives growth in the visitor economy. This project is one of many that will provide crucial support to the NSW economy and help our regional towns recover from the devastating fires and COVID-19 pandemic.
