Mount Kosciuszko (2,228m) is the highest mountain on the mainland of Australia and is considered by some persons to be a member of the 'Seven Summits' list of the highest mountains in each continent. Mount Kosciuszko is situated in the Snowy Mountains (the 'Australian Alps') on the border of the states of New South Wales and Victoria. The mountain is easily accessible with two main routes. The first is from the top of the Mount Kosciuszko chair lift from the Thredbo Valley or a walk along the closed road from Charlottes Pass in the Perisher Valley (it was possible to drive to the top in summer until the road was closed in 1976). We did the latter route as it was more challening and cheaper than paying for the chairlift. During our visit in late October (spring in Australia) there was still plently of snow on the mountain but not enough to warrant the use of crampons. Full winter conditions on the mountain can be extreme. The return walk to the top and back should take 4-5 hours but we detoured to take in a nearby peak. It is also possible to return to Charlottes Pass via the slightly longer Main Range ridge walk but weather and snow conditions on our visit prevented us from doing this. A visit to the Snowy Mountains and a climb of Mount Kosciuszko is highly recommended if you are in the area.
