Dreaming of a White Christmas? Well Thredbo’s Christmas in July is the perfect solution with lots of fun the whole family can enjoy! You might even get to see the big jolly man himself...
Kosciuszko National Park with 673,524 hectares is an area of outstanding beauty with glacial lakes, limestone caves, grasslands and woodlands. In winter the Park is host to some of Australia's best skiing conditions. The rest of the year it's ideal for summer hiking, mountain biking, climbing, white water adventures, caving, sight-seeing and other nature based experiences.
In spring and summer, the mountains are ablaze with wildflowers and crisscrossed by walking tracks, many above the tree line providing spectacular views over the roof top of Australia.
Mount Kosciuszko is the highest point in Australia at 2,228 metres. Count Paul Strzelecki, who climbed it from the western side on the 15th February 1840, named it after a Polish general who fought for the colonists in the War of Independence and led an unsuccessful revolt against the partitioning of Poland in 1794.
