The high peaks of Kosciuszko National Park have earned it the prestigious UNESCO Biosphere Reserve status. A mecca for walkers who are keen to experience rugged scenery, beautiful wildflowers and Mt Kosciuszko, there’s a real sense of completion as you wind your way through Wragges Creek to Thredbo with spectacular views at nearly every step.
Formed over millions of years of glacial, ocean and volcanic activity, this is undoubtedly one of Australia’s most breathtaking landscapes. Walk alongside rivers and undulating valleys while traversing a mix of gentle and more challenging ascents across easy mountain passes. There are some optional loops involving shorter trails leading to spectacular lookouts. Above the treeline you’ll walk to the glacially formed Blue Lake and along vast snow plains reminiscent of Middle Earth.
Enjoy lunch beside pristine glacial lakes and crystal-clear creeks while listening to the clack and roll of rivers stones. Here, wildflower-carpeted meadows overlook vast valleys of the Australian Alps with the Great Dividing Range on the horizon. Hike through snow gum woodlands and colourful alpine meadows by Blue Lake. Follow the Aqueduct Trail and on the last day take the chairlift ride back to the top to walk down to Thredbo via Dead Horse Gap, capping off what is an amazing unbroken linear trek through the Alps.
