FT-Full-NEWThe Federation Track is a 3,000 kilometre bushwalking route from Circular Quay in Sydney on the east coast of Australia to Adelaide on Gulf St Vincent.


It traverses coastal areas, native bushland, alpine plateaus, eucalyptus forests, open plains, rainforests, rich farmland and historic towns. The track has been proof-walked, documented and waypointed (GPX). The Track caters for walkers doing day walks along shorter sections or completing the entire route in a series of walking holidays. It also caters for experienced backpackers.


It passes through some of the most scenic country in Australia from coastal splendour to alpine majesty; from endless skies to never-ending ridges; from towering forests to fern-filled grottos; from crystal clear creeks to saltpans fringed by tortured trees. The variety is infinite.


A proof-walked northern extension connects Federation Track to The Carrai Plateau. A proof-walked spur from Mt Jagungal in Koscziusko National Park connects Federation Track to Old Parliament House in Canberra.
