Western Arthurs. By Siena, Josh and Haakon

In the midst of a pandemic and resultant border closures, all interstate adventures teeter on the verge of cancellation. Hence, it was with a sense of bewilderment that 3 of us locked the car and set foot on the Western Arthur traverse last week.

After being regaled with numerous anecdotes of people being snowed in on the range for days, we had a constant sense that a brutal weather system might be just around the corner.

Luckily, the weather smiled upon us with only a couple of days of hefty wind and rain. The rest of the time, we found ourselves wandering through the dense scrub in misty, overcast or beautifully sunny conditions.

The week of walking (and scrambling) took us up and down numerous peaks and weaving through the lake-ridden landscape. The day of walking from Lake Oberon to High Moor was particularly spectacular, with the near-perfect conditions providing great views of the surrounding vista. All in all, a great trip.

Thanks to Mont for keeping us dry, warm, and sheltered from the wind!

Great photos of what has to be one of the best (if not the best) walks in Australia. Thanks for sharing.

At 79, I won’t get there (but have done Federation Traverse from Farmhouse Creek to Scotts Peak dam), so thanks for the spectacular photos.

We left from Guthega Power Station in wild, snowy weather carting a makeshift sled, piled with firewood, made by Hilly the day before from an old boogie board, a dissected pool noodle and rope.

Earlier in July I went for an overnight Ice Climbing trip at Blue Lake in Kosciouszko National Park.

I setup camp with my Moondance 2FN tent in a nice sheltered spot that I often enjoy under Mt Twynam.
