ACT National Parks

Kosciuszko National Park

Located in the Snowy Mountains just to the west of the ACT, this park has the highest mountains in Australia. In winter, there are snowfields and ski resorts that cater for skiing, snowboarding and just about everything else to do with snow, while the rest of the year you can enjoy the alpine splendour. The highest parts of the park can be explored only during the warmer months, but there are plenty of walks and exploring to do anytime of the year. See more about the Alpine Snowfields of NSW.
