Many of the 58 Alpine Bushwalking in the Kosciuszko National Park start at or nearby Kosciuszko Mountain Retreat. There are picturesque alpine tracks to suit all ages and level of fitness.
Kosciuszko Mountain Retreat has a family of kangaroos living in the Park. Also in the surrounding bushland there are wallabies, wombats, squirrel gliders, possums and platypus in the nearby streams, and, if you walk quietly enough and remain vigilant you may spot a spotted-tailed quoll or pygmy possum. The pygmy posum is a mouse sized animal that was believed to be extinct until unexpectedly discovered in 1966. Like othe small mammals in the alpine region, the pygmy possum survives the winter under a layer of snow.
Running through Kosciuszko Mountain Retreat is 'Sawpit Creek*' which runs into the Thredbo River just a short distance from our park. Also close by is the famous Snowy River. Most of these provide excellent trout fishing spots in a beautiful alpine setting.
