Main Range Track

The Main Range Track is considered one of Australia's great day walks. Above the tree-line in the alpine area of Kosciuszko there is a 22 kilometre loop walk which begins and ends at Charlotte Pass. The track takes walkers across the Snowy River, up over Mt Carruthers towards the summit of Kosciuszko itself and then by Rawson's Pass and down the hill back towards the starting point. The best time to do this walk is between December and March when the wild flowers are in bloom.

Type of forest: Alpine
Walking distance: 22 kilometre
Time: Dawn to dusk
Difficulty: High levels of fitness are required. Visit the Snowy Region Visitors Centre in Jindabyne to check conditions, register for the walk and hire a Personal Locator Beacon.
How to get there: Kosciuszko National Park is near Jindabyne, a five-hour drive south of Sydney. The walk begins at Charlotte's Pass.
