"We walked to the top of Mount Kosciuszko - what a view. It was like we were on top of the world."
If you’re visiting Kosciuszko National Park in the warmer months, a walk to the summit of Mount Kosciuszko is a must-do.
Starting at the top of the Kosciuszko Express chairlift at Thredbo, this challenging walk takes you on a journey past the rocky granite outcrops of Rams Head Range and through heathlands for a couple of kilometres before reaching the lookout. Take in the scenic views before setting off for the summit.
You’ll cross over the headwaters of the Snowy River, before climbing above Lake Cootapatamba and continuing on to Rawson Pass. Take a break to enjoy your surroundings and check out the interpretive displays to find out about the significance of this country to Aboriginal people.
From here, it’s a gradual climb to the summit of Mount Kosciuszko, mainland Australia’s highest mountain. The view is bound to impress you. Stay as long as you like before walking back along the track to Thredbo.
