Adventures for every season : Kosciuszko National Park

When you think of Kosciuszko National Park your mind immediately goes to the mountain. The 2228m peak after which the park is named gets snow on the mind, and the fact that Thredbo, Perisher and Charlotte Pass ski resorts are within the park doesn’t help the snow-cus (snow focus...nevermind).

But did you know that Kosciuszko is so much more than just winter activities? In fact, it’s an all-year-round adventure playground.

Think kayaking down the mythical Snowy River. The best mountain biking in Australia at Thredbo. Caving at Yarrangobilly Caves. Endless hiking opportunities. Even rock climbing and road tripping! Yeah, there’s a lot more going on than the ski resorts. Here’s how to Kosciuszs-go 365 days a year.
