Thredbo’s most famous and iconic hike, the Mt. Kosciuszko Summit is a must do hike for everyone. The perfect hike for all ages and abilities…make your way to the top of Australia as you take in the beautiful sights and surroundings of the Snowy Mountains. From ancient glacial lakes to unique alpine flora and fauna, there’s so much adventure to enjoy.

Did you know that Mt. Kosciuszko is one of the seven summits? It sits at 2,228 metres and is the highest mountain in Australia! Not to worry though, it’s really not that hard. Thredbo has a scenic chairlift that gets you up to 1937m…so your legs are good to go for the roughly 4 hour round trip hike and have enough juice left in the thighs for when you reach the top to get your #ConquerKozzie photo.

Who’s got some adventure in their belly? The Mt. Townsend hike is a guided hike for the lovers of the outdoors and the explorers at heart.

Once you reach the top of Mt. Townsend, which is the second highest point in Australia…sitting at 2209m it’s only 19m behind Mt. Kosciuszko, you’ll take in the views of the dramatic western faces of the Main Range and breathtaking views of NSW you wouldn’t believe existed.
