This Bogong area and the fainters is one of my favourites, and that’s a great week our you have listed there, but once flights are allowed and reliable it’s NZ south Islands for me for some serious getting away from it all. Before the flights though, maybe a snow camp up on Mt Stirling, then Bogong region sounds good too!

Did mostly that route in reverse last year, but instead of directly linking tawonga huts with pole 333 went off track accross to the track to Weston's then down to the river, up Diamantina to feathertop, then Hotham, dibbins, BHP and onwards... an "almost" figure 8. Also stayed off track along the crest of the fainters and jaitmathangs which was well worth it. Was 7 days as well. Track from black possum to arthur then down the other side is rough but well enough defined, and everything else on good track from memory (apart from the above mentioned off track bits, but they're optional)? *&%$#! good walk. Bogong jack saddle is a great campsite too :)
