If you are seeking a shorter leadup walk, then consider McMillans Walking Track. It is 210km long and takes up to 14 days walking and traverses the southern side of the alps. It has a lot of similarities with steep climbs and ascents, forested sections, river crossings and even a long off-track section. Of course there are also some differences with gold mining relics and one day with 24 river crossings! It is easier to organise as there is access by two wheel drive about every 2 or 3 days and, with a four-wheel drive, access to the track every night except one. It crosses the Australian Alps Walking Track at Mt Shillinglaw.
