    Falls Creek, New South Wales, Australia
    Mount Feathertop
    ****Weather Can Change very Quickly, and Blizzards in Summer aren't unheard off****

    The main access routes on Mount Feathertop are the Razorback (north and south), Bon Accord Spur, Bungalow Spur, North-west Spur, and Diamantina Spur. Hiking on the East Ridge, North-east Spur, and Champion Spur has been possible at times after fires but the routes are now overgrown and rarely used.The North Razorback track is the shortest and easiest route to Mount Feathertop but it is along a ridgeline and can be very exposed during bad weather. It is possible to drive to within 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) of the summit during summer but a winter road closure leaves a walk or ski of 7.3 kilometres (4.5 mi).The South Razorback is a very popular walk in summer and it is a spectacular ski tour in winter. It starts at Diamantina Hut on the Great Alpine Road near the Mount Hotham ski resort and is relatively flat but is also very exposed during bad weather. The south Razorback track covers a distance of 11 kilometres (6.8 mi) from its start to the summit.
