These three stickies are for AAWT facts, no discussion, please.

These notes are written from a southbound perspective, Tharwa to Thredbo.

At Pond Creek the 4WD track is quite obvious.

On the leg to the Murrumbidgee River the first telephone pole is at around 410468, with a possible pad north and then west of the knoll NE of here. (I met the pole line by going due west from the shallow saddle south of the knoll.)

The last pole has a track that goes west and AAWT markers pointing back on the poles and SE to Dairymans Creek, which I jumped across.

At Kiandra, reliable water is available from the creek just north of where Tabletop Trail meets the Snowy Mountains Highway.

There’s a magnetic deviation on Tabletop Trail between the transmission line and the Selwyn ski trails.

The route from the AAWT near Boltons Hill Trail to Happys Hut is scrubby, not happy for uphill.

Broken Dam hut is new, and not too far from Four Mile.

There have been many comments on the number of NSW maps needed for the AAWT and thus the cost involved. I have just discovered that all NSW topo maps are now free to download in TopoPDF format which can be used with the free Avenza Maps app on smartphones. http://maps.six.nsw.gov.au/etopo.html . I have also posted this in the NSW section of the site.

From Tharwa heading south you need the following to get to Thredbo:
    8726-4N Williamsdale,
    8626-1N Corin Dam,
    8626-1S Rendezvous Creek,
    8626-4S Rules Point,
    8626-4N Peppercorn if going to Blue Waterholes,
    8626-3N Tantangara,
    8526-2N Ravine not really needed. It only covers a tiny corner of Kiandra but hey, it's free.
    8526-2S Cabramurra,
    8626-3S Denison,
    8625-4N Old Adaminaby,
    8525-1N Toolong Range,
    8525-1S Jagungal,
    8525-2N Geehi Dam
    8525-2S Perisher Valley.
To get from Thredbo to the Border you need:
    8525-2S Perisher Valley. Also in list above.
    8524-1N Chimneys Ridge, (name fixed)
    8524-4N Tom Groggin,
    8524-4S Davies Plain,
    8524-S Suggan Buggan (1:50k) although I would recommend getting the VicMap 8524-3N Cobberas instead as it covers a lot on the Victorian side as well at 1:25k.

Great work Mark, just one small thing ...it is 8524-1N Chimneys Ridge. Chimney comes up as invalid.
