Dave Byrnes' Adventures

Alpine Track - 1983

Overview     Diary

In 1983, I set out to hike the length of the relatively new Alpine Track that traversed the Victorian Alps.  I didn't make it the whole way, mainly because of sore feet, and hitch-hiked home from Mt Hotham.  The Alpine Track was later extended into New South Wales and became known as the Australian Alps Walking Track. In retrospect, I learnt lessons from this hike about planning, tolerance of discomfort, and focus that benefited me in all of my subsequent adventures.
