This is an alpine walk from the top of the quad express chairlift to Seamans Hut via the summit of Kosciusko. We follow the main summit trail via Rawson Pass to the summit then down the Charlotte Pass Road to Seamans Hut. We camp next to Seamans Hut and return the next day via the Snowy River Valley with some off-track walking back to the top of the chairlift.

Distance (km or hrs)
16 kms - Some may be in snow and some will be off track with creek crossings.
Perisher Valley 1:25000
A mix of steel platform, gravel road, button grass, creek crossing and old scrubby track and perhaps some snow. All the good stuff
$192 per car. Each car will also need to purchase a two-day Parks Pass which is $34 for the two days which makes the car rate $226. Lift pass is $52 per person. We will purchase our lift passes when we arrive at Thredbo Village. Do not prepurchase your pass online in case the weather forces us to cancel. We will aim to be at Thredbo Village by close to 10 am and at the top of the Chairlift by 11 am.
Because this is an alpine walk you will need good weather proof gear and a good tent and sleeping bag. We are completely exposed to the weather so a good shell with warm layers is essential. Thermals, gloves, beanie and the rest. Do not wear any cotton clothes as this is dangerous in cold, wet weather. This is not a difficult walk but the terrain and altitude can make it challenging if the weather turns. If you need advice on what to bring please contact me well beforehand.
A multi day backpacking or base-camping activity with overnight gear required.

This short ramble will see us wander around the lower slopes of Black Mountain, searching for two species of scorpions living in Canberra. The best part? When you shine a UV/black light on them, they glow an amazing aqua colour. There is never any gu...
