Illawong Hut & Suspension Bridge (March 2021)

On Easter Saturday, we drove from Island Bend around to Guthega and did a favourite walk of mine that we haven’t been on in the best part of ten years: the undulating trail out to Illawong Hut and the suspension bridge there that crosses the Snowy River. The Main Range views are excellent!

A new bridge to cross the river, in front of the old (and much more fun!) flying fox

If it looks a little rickety…that’s because it is!
The trail continues along the left side of the river, eventually all the way to Charlotte Pass
Looking back towards Guthega.
