Mount Kosciuszko - Kosciuszko National Park

The 13‑kilometre-return Mount Kosciuszko walk to the top of Australia’s highest peak, at 2228 metres, leads from the end of the ski chairlift that continues to operate in summer. The track crosses over alpine fields, the headwaters of the Snowy River and Rawsons Pass, before climbing to the summit. For a multi-day walk, you can continue beyond Kosciuszko to Mount Townsend and Blue Lake, a small lake at the base of rocky hills that was formed by the head of a glacier.
