Bungalow Spur is one of the more popular routes up Mt Feathertop (1922 metres). Climbing over 1300m from the hamlet of Harrietville this walk is a 22km return journey and one of the classics of the Victorian High Country. It is best done as an overnight hike but can be done with a car shuffle in a day with a vehicle awaiting on the Great Alpine Road at Diamantina Hut. Be prepared for snow and high winds any time of the year and take sufficient food and water to for emergencies. Please note it is also a fuel stove only area and fires cannot be lit.

Carparking at Bungalow Spur Walking is now located at Tronah Reserve

BUNGALOW SPUR CARPARK | Council has been working with the community, the Tronoh Reserve Committee of Management and Parks Victoria to facilitate suitable, safe parking for visitors to the popular Bungalow Spur Walking Track up Mount Feathertop.
This week new signage will be visible to those visiting the walking track:
- A series of permanent signs will designate the area immediately opposite the existing trailhead on Feathertop Track as a drop off zone only, designed for motorists to drop off and collect walkers and their equipment.
- A temporary Variable Message Sign will be installed to direct motorists to a new carparking area in the Tronoh Reserve and limit vehicular traffic on Feathertop Track.
The scope of the Alpine Better Places Harrietville Detailed Concept Design project includes carparking and trailhead facilities in the Tronoh Reserve, and interested members of the community are encouraged to provide feedback on the draft concept designs during the next community consultation planned in early 2021.
For further information, please contact Council on 5755 0555 or info@alpineshire.vic.gov.au.
