Roof of Australia Self Guided Inn-to-Inn Walking Holiday - Seven Days

Appropriately called the Roof of Australia, this walking holiday traverses Australia's Alps, staying overnight in secluded ski villages.

Much of the national park is snow covered from May to November, but then the snow melts, the high peaks of Kosciuszko National Park then become a mecca for walkers keen to see the rugged scenery, masses of spectacular wildflowers and of course reach the summit of Mount Kosciuszko.

On this walk you will see an ancient landscape carved out by receding glaciers of the last Ice Age, enjoy lunch beside a pristine lake and walk through snowgum woodlands and colourful alpine meadows. In summer the wildflowers have to be seen to be believed.

Snowy Mountains Snowshoeing Six Day Group Guided Walking Holiday

Snow shoeing is just like bushwalking on top of the snow covered ground. It's fun, leisurely and a lot easier than skiing, Modern snowshoes are easy to use. They are lightweight and you simply strap them onto your hiking boots and start walking, with the assistance of a couple of stocks (poles) for balance.

Their base is below the snowline, overlooking Lake Jindabyne. Each day you'll travel to the alpine ski areas of Perisher, Thredbo or Blue Cow and head off away from the crowds.

Exactly where you go will depend on the local weather conditions as you will be seeking out sheltered spots with good snow cover, using the underground Ski Tube train or a chairlift.
