Kosciuszko National Park is made up of 6 wilderness areas consisting of a wide range of vegetation, landforms and animal habitats for visitors to explore.
Kosciuszko National Park undergoes amazing transformations between seasons. From skiing and touring in a winter wonderland to bushwalking in summer amongst the alpine wildflowers, the region offers unlimited recreational activities for its visitors.
