Have you stood tall on top of Australia’s highest mountain?
Can you claim to have reached the top of one of the worlds seven summits? Thredbo is challenging all Australians to Conquer Kozzie, tick the country’s highest mountain off their bucket list and capture the ultimate Aussie selfie.
The walk begins at the top of the Kosciuszko Express chairlift at Thredbo. After crossing Merritt’s Creek it runs beside the rocky outcrops of Rams Head Range and passes through herbfields and heath to Kosciuszko Lookout. It then crosses the headwaters of the Snowy River, climbs to a saddle above Lake Cootapatamba and continues past Ethridge Range to Rawson’s Pass. From here it is a gradual climb up the old road to Mt Kosciuszko’s summit. Return to Thredbo along the same route.
Thredbo to Kosciuszko Lookout is 2km one way. Mt Kosciuszko is 6.5km one way.
