Friday 26th to Sunday 28th January, 2024
Welcome to our Mt Kosciuszko Walk, 22kms of walking to the summit of Mt Kosciuszko from Charlotte Pass and return.
Our Mt Kosciuszko Walk will commence with all participants meeting on Friday evening at our accommodation at Jindabyne before commencing the Mt Kosciuszko Walk on Saturday morning, and then staying overnight at our accommodation again on the Saturday night, before a leisurely Sunday brunch before heading home, having climbed Australia’s highest peak.
The Walk will take in the Main Range trail, which connects with the Summit Walk and then returns to Charlotte Pass, the return trip of 22-23kms will take between 7-8 hours, so it will be your responsibility to ensure that you can walk that distance over 8 hours, to ensure that the group can enjoy the walk and exploring the local area. This is not a Walk for inexperienced hikers, and we strongly encourage you to have participated in one of our other walks prior to attempting the Mt Kosciuszko Walk.
Our accommodation will be a mixture of single beds, bunk beds and double beds in comfortable connecting houses.
It is important to note though that the Mt Kosciuszko Walk is an experience, not a race. We will walk as a group, and participants can rest as required, and frequent breaks will be had to ensure we rehydrate and eat as well as stop to enjoy the stunning views.
The Mt Kosciuszko Walk will follow the plan laid below. Please note that the daily start/stop points may vary slightly due to inclement weather etc., however if we are prepared physically and with appropriate clothing etc., we shouldn’t have any dramas.
All meals, snacks, accommodation, park fees and guided walk on Mt Kosciuszko are included in your package fee.
Please ensure you advise of any dietary preferences or health issues prior to booking your place.
After meeting the evening before for dinner at our accommodation at Jindabyne, we will have a hearty breakfast and then commence walking around 8am towards the Summit, crossing the infamous Snowy River along the way. We expect to average between 3-5kms an hour depending on the steepness of the terrain at times, however we will have plenty of time to enjoy the views at the top of Australia!
We will have lunch near the summit, before returning back to our start point, taking our time to experience this amazing view. Upon returning to our start point we will return to our accommodation and enjoy a celebration of our achievement, knowing that we have a comfy bed awaiting, and a delicious brunch the next morning before we head home.
