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

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
