Kosciuszko National Park
The Australian alpine regions are some of the oldest snow-covered landscapes in the world. An Australian alpine experience provides young people a fantastic opportunity to visit and explore the stunning Kosciuszko National Park all year round but especially while it is covered in snow when our world-renowned twisted Snow Gums display their beauty and their ability to bend with the snow’s weight.
Land’s Edge Foundation programming in this location is renowned throughout the outdoor education industry as being of the highest-quality and managed by the best outdoor educators in Australia.
Summer Option: LEF offers young people an opportunity to explore the region during the warmer months, when the sight of the ground blanketed with delicate and colourful Australian wildflowers is spectacular.
Winter Option: For the most part in alpine areas, LEF offers programs of between three and five days but as all programs are tailored for individual groups, longer trips can be arranged. Both residential and expedition-style programs are offered.
All LEF Alpine Experiences are appropriate for the requirements of the Duke of Edinburgh Award (Gold, Silver or Bronze).
