Overview

We’ve revamped our original Kosi trip and now we’re in a better location, better accommodation, better hiking and even better views! Picture this… you’re standing on the highest mountain in Australia; looking out across the vast mountain range, spectacular views as far as the eye can see. There’s a slight breeze in your hair and those endorphins (from the hike up) are buzzing around and you’re probably thinking ‘life is pretty good right good right now’. 
We’re going to Kosciuszko National Park and we’re staying in the heart of the hiking action; the Perisher Valley. Kosciuszko, one of Australia’s greatest national parks, features a diverse alpine landscape which includes the famous Snowy River and the highest mountain in Australia. Did you know this was the only area in mainland Australia to be covered by glacial ice (thousands of years ago) that’s why you’ll see glistening glacier lakes on the trail. The area is also inhabited by rare plants and animals and has rich Aboriginal and European heritage. This region provides a vast array of hiking and we’re going at the prime time for the best hiking conditions. 
Over the four days, we’ll give you a real taste of the high country and explore the Snowy Mountains. Feel a true connection with nature as you walk along the stunning trails of this iconic alpine wonderland. Enjoy delicious chef prepared meals, laughs with new friends, a hot shower and comfortable bed after each action-filled day. Explore this spectacular adventure playground in TSA style.
