      Kosciuszko - The Roof of Australia

      A journey to the top of Australia. One of the "Seven Summits" and a unique winter challenge.  Mt Kosciuszko (2228 metres) can be a challenging destination & is 6.5 km from the top of the Kosciuszko Express Chair or 9 km from Charlottes Pass and return.This is a FULL day and it is recommended that you do a 1/2 day tour to ensure you are prepared for travelling onto the Main Range where the weather & conditions can change rapidly!

      On a "good" day it is a straight forward journey in summer but an 'expedition experience' most days through winter.  Summer Walking Trails can be buried under snow so navigation is critical....white outs very common.  Contact us for scheduled departures.

      • $199/Person Full Day
      • (incl. guiding/instruction)
      • Equipment and lunch not included.
      • Minimum 3 people
