The Thredbo Valley Track Extension Project will deliver world class mountain biking experiences in Kosciuszko National Park.
By extending both ends of the popular Thredbo Valley Track the project will create 45 kilometres of mountain bike trails that will help establish the region as a summer adventure hub.
What the project involves
The project involves construction of new sections of track at both ends of 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, with a new bridge across the Thredbo River, is expected to open in 2019.
Gaden Trout Hatchery to Thredbo River Picnic Area on the Kosciuszko Road (1.6km) will be completed in 2020.
Dead Horse Gap to Thredbo Village: A 4 kilometre section will be added to the start of the track south-west of Thredbo village, to be completed in 2021.
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.
