    Trip at a glance

    Experience the majestic and wild beauty of Australia's only true alpine region as we make our way through the breathtaking scenery of Perisher Valley, stunning Blue Lake, and Mount Kosciuszko. This bucket-list adventure is the perfect opportunity to share stories with Lou from Borneo, while you explore the best of Australia's High Country with an expert guide and a small group with like-minded individuals.

    During our journey, we'll encounter glacier-fed freshwater creeks, historic huts, weathered snow gums, and cool granite tors that were carved out during Australia's last Ice Age. The unique vegetation of the Snowy Mountains will captivate you as you admire the stunning display of over 200 species of wildflowers covering the ground alongside spongy sphagnum moss and fragrant alpine mint bush.

    As we take in the crisp mountain air, you'll have the chance to drink from one of the many cascading icy alpine streams and keep an eye out for mountain pygmy-possums, wombats, emus, platypus, echidnas, crimson rosellas, and even wedge-tailed eagles in their extraordinary natural habitat.

    Give back

    We know travel is better when you can give back as much as you get. That’s why we have designed our trips around contributing, supporting and participating in local projects and community initiatives that have a positive social and environmental impact.

    Each of our tours provide a unique way to get up close and personal with the destination and incorporate a fundraising target or donation into the travel costs, which enables travellers to connect, give back, and travel with purpose.

    If you are a charity, corporate or a private group interested in climbing Kozi please get in touch.
