New for 2016/17 Walk
TWIN PEAKS: Mt Kosciuszko and Mt Townsend
Climb Australia’s two highest peaks in a day with the Kosciuszko Twin Peaks Walk. You'll take in the majestic views of the alpine area and into the Victorian High Country. First you conquer Mt Kosciuszko, Australia’s highest mountain and then head out to, what some say is the better looking, Mt Townsend. From the top you look down onto glacial lakes and the dramatic western faces of the Main Range. The walk meanders through remote ridges and jumbled granite boulders. This fully guided, 22km, all day walk starts and finishes in Thredbo. This walk truly represents what the Australian Alps is all about.

Kids Night Adventure
Get ready….it’s adventure time!
This year’s adventure will start off at Thredbo Sports and head, as a team, down to the Leisure Centre. At the Leisure Centre, there will be group activities and games to do while the sausage sizzle gets sorted on the BBQ.
After dinner, it’s off onto their adventure… this year with a great purpose. We will be planting trees in the resort and learning about climate change and the importance of trees to this environment. The kids will be doing the planting themselves and will be able to re visit the planting site for years to come. They will learn about the ecosystem they are creating and what animals may move in once the trees are start growing.
After their tree has been planted, they’ll return via track, trail and hill rolling to the Leisure Centre for more games and crafts such as making picture frames and boomerangs. Parents can then pick their kids up between 8:50 to 9:00 pm outside the Leisure Centre childcare facility.
Please ensure your child has a warm jumper, jacket and enclosed shoes good for walking. It’s also recommended for them to bring a drink bottle for water and a head torch if they own one… if not one will be provided. Bookings are essential; a minimum of two is required for this adventure to go. A wet weather plan is in place as well, so adventure will be held in doors in case of bad weather.
