The Perfect Escape
Summer activities include hiking, mountain biking and cycling, fishing and renowned scenic drives.
Besides the world class star gazing, extraordinary photography and flower explosions, you might explore the engineering wonders of the Snowy Mountains Hydro-electric Scheme.
You may like to visit the Yarrangobilly Caves and Thermal Pool (a pleasant 27 degrees year round), drop in to the Ag Barn Fibre Centre, pop out to the Dalgety Brewery or Wild Brumby Distillery for a tasting and lunch, or head down to Geehi to experience real ‘Man from Snowy River’ country.
These are just a few examples of the endless activities in the region throughout summer.
Take a packed lunch with you on the Summit Walk or Main Range Loop. The Summit Walk follows the old road to Mount Kosciuszko. The walk passes through snow gums, heath and herbfields and provides extensive views of the Main Range and Snowy River. After crossing the Snowy River the track climbs gradually to Seaman’s Hut, Rawson’s Pass and Mount Kosciuszko’s summit.
The Main Range track takes you over the Snowy River out to Blue Lake lookout. It then climbs around to Carruther’s Peak, which provides spectacular views to the west. It then continues along the exposed ridge of the Main Range above Club Lake and Lake Albina until it meets the Summit Walk between Rawson’s Pass and Mount Kosciuszko.
Climb Kosciuszko before returning via the old road back to Charlotte Pass. There are also many other marked trails and short hikes to and from the lodge including the new Mt Stilwell trail and lookout boardwalk. Detailed maps are available from the lodge.
