About the Walk

Overview

Starting from the Mt St Gwinear car park you travel through snow gums, summit Mt St Gwinear, visit the nearby Tullicoutty Glen, Thomson's Run, and Mt St Phillack before returning to the car park.

The Walk in Detail

Starting from the Mt St Gwinear car park you travel through snow gums, summit Mt St Gwinear, visit the nearby Tullicoutty Glen, Thomson's Run, and Mt St Phillack before returning to the car park.

From the Mt St Gwinear car park travel north-west past the viewing platform to Jeep Track Flat. From here walk over Mt St Gwinear summit and on to the rock shelter which is on the Australian Alps Walking Track. Next we head off track in a westerly direction for 300m to Tullicoutty Glen.
The ephemeral creek and water hole in the Glen freeze in winter and can usually hold a hikers weight.

Still off track, walk west climbing out of the Glen to the ridge line, then head in a north-west direction with Thomson's Run on your right hand side. After about one kilometre you will come to West Tanjil Creek and an old ski trail. At the ski trail turn north-east and after 500ml re-join the Australian Alps Walking Track. Turning right, follow the trail over the summit of Mt St Phillack. Stay on the Australian Alps Walking Track until you reach the rock shelter, turn left and retrace your path back to the car park.

Getting There

From Moe, 130 km East of Melbourne on the Princes Highway, drive to Rawson 36.2 km amd 41minutes from Moe. Take the Moe-Walhalla Road C466, turn right onto Knotts Siding Road C481.

From Rawson, travel approximately 18 km up the Thomson Valley Rd to the Mt St Gwinear Road (on your left) and another 5 km through delightful forested country to reach the car park.

Walk Precautions

This walk is in an alpine environment above the snow line. The weather can change very quickly so the appropriate equipment must be carried at all times. Always carry plenty of water.
