Finally, you’ll get an email with directions on everything you need to prepare for your adventure. Beginning your Mount Kosciuszko to Coast adventure:

We recommend to go in a coach from home to the Kosciuszko to Coast start campground Ngarigo.

While we can help with the planning, your school or your group of friends will be responsible for making all decisions on the coach’s hiring, scheduling, and other details.
Another option is for parents to drive to Ngarigo, the starting campsite, which is around 10 kilometres from Thredbo village.

The first part, hiking and camping:

Firstly, we will team you up with nine other hikers and your group’s adventure guide on your first hiking day.

You will remain with your team for your entire Journey to the coast.

Next will be a transfer to the bottom of the Kosciuszko chairlift in the Walking Rivers Troop Carrier.

You have now finished with vehicle travel for the next twenty days. Your trek from Kosciuszko to Bass Strait has begun in earnest.

You will spend the following six days walking with your guide and friends.

Learning fascinating things about nature while conversing with your team mates and having fun will be a key part of your day.

Additionally, you will always be following a map and learning to figure out where you are.

Crossing streams, climbing hills, seeing wildlife, connecting with nature, and sharing different experiences with your friends will all be part of your reward for stepping out and making the Journey.

Lastly, sitting beside your campfire is one of the best things you can do at night.

Remember the marshmallows.

You deserve a rest day before Rafting:

You won’t be hiking or rafting on day eight, our relaxation day. But that does not signify that you are doing nothing. Consider this day more a transition day, going from hiking to rafting, than a day to sleep.

During the day, you and your team will spend time getting ready to tackle the next thrilling adventure of rafting down the legendary Snowy River. You will be helping to inflate the rafts, sorting the food and packing everything we need for eleven days in the Snowy Wilderness.

There will be plenty of time for swimming and other enjoyable activities, so don’t worry. It’s not all work and no play.

Everyone must pitch in and help load up the equipment before we head home.Importantly, we must ensure that everything is clean and dry before storing it. Mould and mildew may be prevented from growing on stored equipment if it is dry and clean.
