  • One star because their park fees are outrageous. The pay stations are usually closed and you can't pay in Thredbo. Why isn't there a pay station in Thredbo? There is already a full time range...  more »
  • Climb the mountain via the walkway from Eagles Nest. Check the weather first then get up there. Stunning view along the way and from the peak. Well worth the walk and bring water  more »
  • We couldn’t have asked for a better day to climb Mount Kosciuszko, the weather was perfect and the temperature was fantastic, it was cold in the air but the sun was balancing it out well We drove to....  more »
  • The Kosciuszko NP is always a good place to visit. At the moment though it is just wonderful. After a good drop of rain a few weeks ago most of the park is a riot of colour. Just about every bush and shrub is flowering. The carpet of yellow under the snow gums is a sight to see.
  • Beautiful scenery. Great Australian nature speckled with historic buildings. Lots of windy roads and brumbies all along the trip.. Stunning
  • Dec 25th. Great day out. Mozied up the mountain. There was still few patches of ice/snow for photos and a few snow ball fights. FAMILY NOTE: the path is easy but up hill, mostly on metal grates. Take hats, sunscreen the tops of knees and backs of legs - actually every inch that might get sun! Lip balm is your friend. Take a jumper/jacket for the top and lunch or few snacks and water. #6.5km all up hill so take ya time - start early and have fun stopping for photos and a red frog or two to keeps the kids happy. Please Take a zip lock bag for any rubbish. There is a toilet near the top. #Look for lizards, grasshoppers, birds and beautiful different alpine flowers. On way back reward yourself and we'll behaved ones with a drink from highest restaurant in Australia at top of the ski lift.
  • Totally beautiful National Park. I didn’t expect it to be so beautiful. Keep going past the Thredbo ski fields and you get to go through beautiful forest covered in snow. Gum trees in the snow are so beautiful. It’s such a stunning place to ski, sledge at Cascade Trail, go for a dive and be in aw of such a magnificent piece of nature.
  • Stunning pristine alpine wilderness. Wildlife everywhere. Beautiful place in the world.
