Kosciuszko Park 2021
Horse Riding Trip in Australia to discover the beauty of Kosciuszko National PArk, a protected area located in the South-Eastern corner of New Galles. The park borders give us a mix of rugged mountains and wild nature, a picturesque destination known mainly on winter, thanks to its beautiful ski slopes, wiht a breath-taking view on snowed mountains.
The Park hosts a lot of exemples of Australian fauna, like the opossum pigmeo, and many bird’s species. It also offers a hearty and various vegetation, even if the majority of flora bear still the signs of the tragical 2003 fire, from which the Park is still slowly recovering.
In addition to skiers, it’s an ideal goal trip to fishing lovers, for mountain bike fans and, of course, for equestrian tourism, too. Ride a horse discovering the “Snowy Mountains“, area that inspired the famous movie “The Man From Snowy River”. A wild nature with breath-taking landscapes made of snowy peaks, calcareous caves, flower-filled valleys and small mountain lakes, reachables horse-riding.
You will find yourself absorbed in small mountans chalets and ancient gold mines and then gather in the evening around the campfire, talking with your trip mates of day’s adventures. Relax with a hot meal and enjoy your night under the Australian starry sky.
To finish the horse trip, you will visit the entire Northern part of the Park, crossing approximately 160 km tracks: Cave Creek, Curraingo Plain, Tantangara Creek e Mount Tantangara.
