Australian Alps - Walking Holiday

Australian Alps Walking Holiday

Overview

The Australian Alps tour visits the highest reaches of Australia. From Kosciuszko to Khancoban, Buffalo to Bogong, we discover a plethora of plant and animal life, a great variety of walking opportunities and an impressive wealth of history. The views are nothing short of spectacular. From Canberra our first destination is the northern area of the Kosciuszko National Park, where we visit a section of the Yarrangobilly Caves. These limestone caverns are among the most richly decorated in Australia. From Thredbo in the southern area of the national park, we explore Mt Kosciuszko, Blue Lake and Perisher Valley. In the second week of our tour we visit the Bogong High Plains of Victoria. Day walks range from a spectacular ascent of Mt Feathertop, peaceful strolls around Mt Buffalo and Falls Creek and a fascinating section of the classic Australian Alps Walking Track. Beautiful Snow Gums grace our paths on many of the walks in this area. Flora is a highlight in this section and during mid-summer the high plains around Mt. Kosciuszko are lit up with a succession of wildflowers including various daisies such as everlastings, billy buttons (Craspedia sp), and little Brachyscome daisies. We stay in Yarrangobilly, Thredbo, Falls Creek, Dinner Plain and Bright.
