Australian Alps Walking Track – Strategic Plan and Operational Plan 2012 – 2014

Australian Alps Liaison Committee, November 2012



The Australian Alps Walking Track (AAWT) is one of Australia’s premier long-distance walking tracks for seasoned and self-sufficient walkers seeking remote experiences. It also offers a range of shorter walking opportunities for less experienced and less skilled walkers to appreciate the beauty of the Australian Alps.

This document clarifies the purpose of the Australian Alps Walking Track and provides details of how it is to be managed for a range of visitor experiences. This document is in two parts – the Strategic Plan and the Operational Plan.

The Strategic Plan is a tool to encourage States and the Territory to work co-operatively to manage and promote the route of the AAWT as a continuous entity with a range of walking opportunities, and to identify opportunities and initiatives to further improve the track and its promotion.
