Hike or ride from Charlotte Pass to the summit of Mount Kosciuszko, through the peaks of Kosciuszko National Park. Set out along the old road to Mount Kosciuszko, to see Australia's highest mountains, historic huts, weathered snow gums and rock formations. Admire wildflowers like marsh marigolds and silver snow daisies in early summer.
Around 4.5 kilometres from Charlotte Pass the Snowy River offers a scenic picnic spot. Cross the river and continue your walk or ride as the track winds up to Seaman's Hut, built in 1929, before carrying on to Rawson Pass. If riding, leave your bike at Rawson Pass and walk the 1.4 kilometres to the summit of Mount Kosciuszko (2228 metres).
Return to Charlotte Pass along the same track. If you're after a challenge and come well-equipped, combine this walk with the longer Main Range walk, or join the Thredbo to Mount Kosciuszko walk.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
