Read more about Kosciuszko National Park

Explore the rugged alpine landscape of Kosciuszko National Park. This stunning park, offering winter snow and fresh clean air in summer, offers visitors an endless choice of activities.

Enjoy a skiing or snowboarding holiday or weekend getaway at Perisher or Thredbo; and for something more invigorating, try snowshoeing or cross country skiing among snowgum woodlands.

In the warmer months, climb Australia’s highest mainland mountain, go boating and fishing, enjoy the alpine flowers or take a guided tour. If you’ve missing the winter action, there’s rock climbing, caving and mountain biking to get your heart racing, and if you don’t want to go alone, you can take a tour with a recreation tour operator.

One visit will be enough to give you a taste of Kosciuszko’s riches and will have you planning your next trip.

Conservation program:

Iconic species - Southern corroboree frog conservation program

An iconic endangered species, the southern corroboree frog, found only in Kosciuszko National Park, faces the grave threat of extinction. Saving Our Species aims to prevent this from happening by battling chytrid fungus, protecting frog habitat from pests, and fostering a captive breeding program.
