I may have raised this issue in the past.  Walking tracks are never 
signposted or otherwise marked through declared wilderness areas.  This 
includes some sections of the Australian Alps Walking Track.  Maps 
should not show tracks in those specific wilderness areas.  It's every 
man to herself, so to speak.
