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 60km 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.
Dead Horse Gap to Thredbo Village (Upper TVT): A 4km section will be added to the start of the track south-west of Thredbo village, expected to open in 2020.
Bullocks Hut to Gaden Trout Hatchery (Lower TVT): A new 17km section of track following the Thredbo River downstream from Bullocks Hut to Gaden, across the Thredbo River and joining existing off-park trails, expected to open in 2019. An option to continue downstream along the Thredbo River, within Kosciuszko National Park, to the Thredbo Picnic Area on the Kosciuszko Road is also being investigated.
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.
