Experience the natural beauty of Australia’s highest mountains in summer as you walk and hike some incredible alpine trails. Whether it’s a family friendly hike to the top of Mt Kosciuszko or an advanced day hike across the Australian Main Range, there’s something for every age and ability to enjoy. With glacial lakes, unique flora and fauna and mountains as far as the eye can see, it’s a must do whilst visiting Thredbo throughout summer.
