Do I need snow chains?
The RTA recommends that chains be carried during
winter (June to October) in the Koscuiszko
National Park. Snow chains should be fitted as
directed by authorised NPWS, RTA and Police
officers or as the conditions require. In some
cases correctly fitting chains must be carried by
2Wd and some AWD vehicles. Failure to do so may
incur a fine exceeding $200.
4WD vehicles are not required by law to carry snow
chains but due to the high incidence of 4WD
vehicle accidents in
Kosciuszko National Park, the RTA now recommends
they do-especially if drivers have little
experience driving in snow/ice risk sections.
