Come explore the hidden and secret places of Australia's largest Alpine National Park, Kosciuszko. Snow-shoeing is a perfect way to discover Australia's unique wilderness and wildlife, at your own pace, for as short or as long as you like.
Experience a landscape very different to Europe and North America, a place with no pine trees, only the gnarled twisted limbs and mottled orange and green trunks of the unique snow gums.
Snow-shoeing is as simple as one foot in front of the next and fitness is not an issue. Half day guided tours are available and these include a gourmet lunch.
For that little added adventure, try the famous "Roof top of Australia Tour".
Explore the winter wonderland & freedom of snow-shoeing with a short 3km walk through the Rock Creek valley to the base of the Mt Perisher Double Chair for a cappuchino or hot chocolate before wandering back down the hill returning to the Perisher Centre. Check out the Snowshoe Trail Map or see http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/NationalParks/parkSnowSports.aspx?id=N0018 for more details.
