In a couple of weeks time I am going with some friends on a walk to the top of Mount Kosciuszko, which is Australia’s highest mountain at 2,228 metres – not high by world standards but high for Australia. We will drive to the township of Thredbo then take the chair lift which travels up the steepest part of the mountain then there is a 6km walk to the top. Chair lifts are not exactly my favourite form of transport but it beats climbing! As it is summer there is little risk of snow but it might be a little chilly. According to the brochure “the undulating mesh and paved walkway make it a manageable walk for those of a reasonable fitness level.” Not sure if I am currently of “a reasonable fitness level” but I have started aerobic exercises once a week plus several walks during the week, so by the time I go I should be reasonably fit. Looking forward to a great day.
