“If you’re keen to step away from the crowds found on nearby Mt Kosciuszko, and take on a more challenging trek, then check out Australia’s second highest peak - Mt Townsend.”

Located in the east of the Olympic National Park and reaching a respectable 2290 metres, the view from Mt Townsend’s granite peak takes in Mt Baker, Mt Rainier, and, if it’s a clear day, Mt St Helens. Unlike Mt Kosciuszko, you’re not going to be competing for space as you climb toward the summitt. You’ll be able to take your time to appreciate the beauty of NSW’s alpine area as you wander through fields of wildflowers, past gigantic boulders and highland grasslands. The incline to the top is gentle but it’s a long day walk so a decent level of fitness is required. Mt Townsend can also get extremely blustery and cold so make sure you’ve got a windbreaker and extra layers, as well as sunblock, water and a hat. The walk begins at the chairlift station above Thredbo. Follow the Kosciuszko boardwalk, continuing straight when the path forks toward Kosciuszko’s summit.
