One of my favourite walks in Australia is the Main Range Track (23km circuit) from Charlotte’s Pass. This full day walk explores some of the greatest alpine country on offer in NSW.
The walk provides views of Blue Lake, climbs to the top of Mt Kosciuszko and crosses the famous Snowy River.
This main range circuit is one of the classic walks in New South Wales.
The Blue Lake is one of only four cirque lakes found in mainland Australia.
Its valley contains the best-developed glacial features in the Kosciuszko National Park alpine area of New South Wales, Australia.
The lake receives water from Blue Lake Creek, originating from Mount Twynam and from snowmelt. The surface of the lake is frozen for about four months of the year; it overflows in spring with the melting of the snow.
Blue Lake is surrounded by alpine herbfield, heaths, bogs and fens supporting a range of native plants and animals.
