BRISBANE CATHOLIC BUSHWALKING CLUB

THU 5th to WED 11th DECEMBER, KOSCIUSZKO NATIONAL PARK, ACCOMMODATED WALK
Leader: Paulette 0414 805 512
Email: [email protected]
Cost:     approx. $2400

Deep in the Snowy Mountains of NSW lies the highest mountain in Australia - the famous Mount Kosciuszko. Climbing Mt Kosciuszko is usually on every hiker’s bucket list as I’ve discovered when speaking with BCBC members; it is on a lot of your bucket list too.  Located just 30 kilometres west of Jindabyne Thredbo is a popular village and where our walk will commence.

Please email your interest to join this trip, asap, noting who you would like to share with, and the number of beds required for your group. Also, your intention regarding arrival in Canberra, i.e. flying driving, etc.  Once registered, I will follow up with you and forward the full detailed program.

As many of you may be aware, Phil had planned this as a through walk.  However, with the level of interest in an accommodated walk, I’ve put together the following program with accommodation at Thredbo staying at The Denman and then moving to Lake Crackenback Resort to take advantage of their Stay 4/pay 3 deal which has added an extra day.
