Fabulous granite formations, green alpine meadows filled with wild flowers & broad views in all directions, make for an excellent walking holiday in Australia's Snowy Mountains. Adventurous Women and our partners at Park Trek provide you with the perfect opportunity to escape and explore this stunning Alpine environment with like-minded souls.  

 

 


**The Kosciuszko National Park features the highest mountains in Australia, so a good level of fitness is required for this tour.

Itinerary

Once we pick you up, we'll travel for a couple of hours until we have our morning tea stop at a local cafe in Cooma.

After a brief visit to the Information Centre we then continue onto Thredbo. We check into our Lodge style accommodation, have lunch and then get organised for the first walk of the tour. Today’s walk follows alongside the cascading, icy waters of the Thredbo River from Dead Horse Gap back into Thredbo village.

On this signposted river track walk, you will see gums growing around granite boulders and watch the river race beneath your feet as you cross the footbridges. Stroll through the snow gum woodlands and enjoy the views down to the river. Keep your eyes on the river for trout and platypus – look for circular ripple patterns.

Upon return to the Lodge you settle in for pre-dinner nibbles, followed by a delicious two-course dinner prepared by your guides.

Meals: Lunch, Dinner

Accommodation: Chalet or lodge accommodation near or in Thredbo

After breakfast and lunch making we head out for our walk to Charlotte’s Pass. Today’s walk sees us walking along a well formed track up to Carruthers Peak enjoying superb views of Lake Albina and Blue Lakes.

After rock-hopping across the Snowy River below Charlotte's Pass, we have a challenging climb up to the top of the Main Range through alpine herb fields past Hedley Tarn Lookout to Blue Lake Lookout. Blue Lake is arguably the jewel in the crown of the Kosciusko National Park. It then climbs Carruthers Peak which provides spectacular views over the western slopes of the Main Range.

It continues along the exposed ridge of the Main Range above Club Lake and Lake Albina until it meets the Summit Walk between Rawson Pass and Mt Kosciuszko.

It is a challenging day of walking and we return to our accommodation in the afternoon for some well-deserved nibbles followed by a lovely two course dinner prepared by your guides.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Accommodation: Chalet or lodge accommodation near or in Thredbo

After the usual breakfast and lunch making our day starts with a bit of a difference. We’ll make our way to the highest point in the country, Mt. Kosciuszko. We take a chairlift ride to the top the Thredbo ski fields, walk to the top of Mt. Kosciusko and return via Dead Horse Gap.

Enjoy the chair lift from Thredbo Village to Main Range. Pass snowdrifts that survive year-round and soak up the awesome splendour of our surrounds on top of Mt. Kosciuszko.

Our return journey follows along a beautifully shaded trail that affords us superb views over the southern end of Australia’s High Country.

After a big day, we head back to our accommodation, freshen up, take a rest and then head to a local restaurant for dinner (at guest own expense).

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

Accommodation: Lodge

After breakfast, we pack up our belongings and the guides will pack the trailer, then we take a walk alongside the river down to the Thredbo Diggings, which is a short leisurely walk. Wallabies and kangaroos are a common sight along the track and during spring, wildflowers such as the yellow bossier and purple hovea are in bloom. Be sure to keep a look out too for platypus in the pools as well!

Lunch is at the Wild brumby Kitchen café in Crackenback(at guests own expense)

We are usually back in Canberra around 4.30pm and can drop you back to the airport around 5.00pm.

Meals: Breakfast

Sue was always at hand when we needed her, and the meals were great. Jazz looked after us all day, and I think I got extra attention because I was old, although I think she will agree that I managed OK. And Leonie was just an extra bonus, especially with her i-phone tips.
