Kosciuszko is an important national park in Australia. It is nearly 700,000 hectares and contains the highest mountain peak in Australia, Mount Kosciuszko. The area is a mixture of rugged mountains and wilderness and is one of the main ski areas in Australia as well as a great place for trekking during Spring and Summer.
The park is located in southen New South Wales and near the Victoria border. The closest city is Canberra and the park is contiguous with Namadgi National Park in the Australian Capital Territory to the north east and with Alpine National Park in Victoria. The towns of Jindabyne, Tumut, and Cooma provide accomodation and services for the park.
In 1997 a 'z' was added to the name of the mountain and park to more accurately reflect its Polish origins.
