Had a great hike... take plenty of water and your lunch, and allow 6 hours there and back, so you can have coffee and waffles at Eagles Nest!!! Great ride on the chairlift.... Well worth the expense👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Mount Kosciuszko is the highest point in Australia, and is surprisingly easy to walk to. We took the chairlift from Thredbo Village (you could walk this part - allow an extra 2-3 hours, as it is a steep climb), which took 15 minutes. From there,...More

We had a great walk on the main range trail even though the weather wasn't the best and the views we under cloud. This made it all more dramatic and when the cloud parted it was spectacular. Still some snow about which made it interesting

The Main Range Trail takes you around past glacial lakes, alpine meadows, bogs, and beautiful mountain ranges to Kosciuszko. As they are fond of reminding you, this is the only area in Australia that has some of these plants, so enjoy it. Not an easy...More

I did the Main Range Trail from Charlotte's Pass at the end of March. I highly recommend doing this walk anti-clockwise heading for Blue Lake first. This means the hardest part of the walk is done first with the most difficult downhill and uphill sections...More

Hiked the Main Track starting from Charlotte's Pass. Some good ups and downs, and spectacular views over the Snowy Mountains before reaching the 800 meter trail to the top of Mount Kosciuszko. Finish back to Charlotte's Pass on the Summit Trail, basically downhill from the...More

I took the easy way - using the Thredbo Chair Lift. I am by no means fit, so was nervous about how I'd go one this walk. I need not have worried. There were some parts that slowed me down but it was all worth...More
