An introduction to the Kosciuszko National Park for experienced walkers.
Charles Warner describes the mountains that are worth climbing, the plains worth traversing, the tracks worth following and the trackless country worth exploring, as well as the best access points and how to reach them, throughout the Park.
The seldom-visited sections in the north and south are as well covered as the popular centre. A large portion of the Park, in fact nearly all of it described here, is truly wild country that can test all the skills of the walker. The inexperienced and the ill-equipped should not venture far from the principal roads and tourist resorts.
The Park can be very unforgiving of ignorance, carelessness and improvidence. This book is written for experienced bushwalkers that are ready and able to handle an often trackless wilderness subject to great and sudden changes in the weather. The conditions and hazards special to the Park are fully discussed so that the walker from interstate or overseas may know what to expect and how best to cope. There is also information on the natural and cultural history of the area.
