We drove in to see the park with the highest peak in Australia – Kosciuszko. The locals here pronounce the name very weird (ko zee os co), Ewa and myself wonder if they could at least try to go for (kosh choo sh co). Anyways, today in the morning it was super foggy and we sipped some tea in the car waiting for it to clear a bit. We did two short tracks: Porcupine and Rainbow Lake. Both hikes went though curvy snow gum trees which apparently are the only trees which have such a wide adaptation throughout Australia as they can be seen from the deserts to the mountains.
We camped out at a nice little camp ground called Kosciusko Mountain Retreat. The manager took extra effort to find us a nice spot, and also provided us with kangaroo food. He then showed us the way to a clearing where wild kangaroos roamed. We had a blast. Woohoo. :)
