SAFETY ALERT: There is no water on the Viking and Razor, March 2016


March 2016.  Bushwalkers undertaking remote day or multi day hiking trips in the Mount Howitt, Cross Cut, Mt Speculation, Razor and Viking areas of the Alpine National Park are required to ensure they have adequate water before leaving trail heads. 

This is due to the dry conditions continuing through the early parts of the Autumn months in this area. 

Several parties have recently run out of water in this area.  Some have descended in unsuccessful attempts to  locate water, resulting in search and rescue events.

If you are visiting this area please ensure that you are carrying enough water.
