Snowshoeing on the Roof of Australia: Kosciuszko National Park

Being able to snowshoe your way to the top of Australia might sound strange, but in a land where the seasons are reversed and where mountains are more like high country hills, it is not surprising that you can attempt Australia's highest peak in one, albeit very long, day.

Making Tracks Downunder

Snowshoeing in Kosciuszko National Park When most people think of Australia, snow doesn't immediately come to mind. Most people think of beaches, desert and endless sun. However, it shouldn't be surprising that in a country nearly as vast as America, Australia has large areas of high country that in Winter turn into a snow-covered wonderland.
