Top of Australia

The Hub and a few mates have mountain biked and hiked to the top of Australia today. Mt Kosciuszko is Australia’s highest peak at 2,228 metres (7,310 ft) above sea level.

I climbed to the top when I was about 16 years old but think I might have to do it again.

Have you been to the highest point of your country?

  1. So I just googled and I haven’t been to the highest point in Ontario or Canada LOL

  2. I have been to Mt. McKinley, but not to the summit. We were fortunate enough to visit Jungfraujoch in Switzerland at the elevation of 11,332 ft (3,454 meters). What a view!

    • Mt McKinley is in Alaska, isn’t it? I imagine that means it is snow covered all year round which would make it tricky to get to the top! I bet the view from Jungfraujoch was amazing – I’ve always wanted to visit Switzerland because the country side looks incredible.

  3. I love that image–the visual and the words. “Top of Australia”–cool.

  4. That is quite the view. I’m not a mountain climber, so no, never been on top of that mountain.

    • It’s not exactly “mountain climbing”, lol. There is a trail so pretty much everyone with average fitness can manage the hike.

  5. Yep. Walked it with the hubby a few years ago. Exhilarating.

  6. Haha possibly! I know the highest in Canada is quite high. Definitely not a simple hike.

  7. I made it almost to the top of Mount Mitchell, the highest peak in the Appalachians at 6600 feet.

    I got stopped by a Ranger, who informed us that there was a rampaging bear around and we should go, we did.

    • Being told, sure you can go to the top but you have to face a rampaging bear, would make me go as well!
