Snowy Mountain Holidays is located near 3 national parks: Kosciuszko National Park. Alpine National Park and Burrowa-Pine Mountain National Park. Between the three, there is plenty of bushwalking available. Kosciuszko National Park is of special interest as it contains: the highest mountains and most extensive alpine snowfields in Australia; the headwaters of our greatest river system, the Murray River; and many unique forms of animal and plant life. The winter snow, the summer wildflowers and the grand vistas of Mt. Kosciuszko are unequalled in the land. Mt. Kosciuszko is the highest mountain in Australia (2228m) and both national and international travellers enjoy walking to the top of Australia. In order to protect the unique flora of the park, a walking track has been built making it an easy going walk. It is a 14k or about 5hr walk (round trip) from the chair lift at the ski area of Thredbo, NSW to the top of Mr Kosciuszko. We are 1 1/2+ hr drive to Thredbo.
