Charlotte Pass

Charlotte Pass is located in the heart of the Snowy Mountains. It is Australia's highest village at 1760 metres above sea level. The resort is snowbound in winter with access only by over snow transport from the Perisher Valley Skitube Terminal.

The village was named after Charlotte Adams who, in 1881, was the first woman to climb Mount Kosciuszko. It is the oldest ski resort in Australia and home to the historic Kosciuszko Chalet that was built in 1930.

In summer it's the starting point for two main trails to Mount Kosciuszko - the nine kilometre Summit Walk and the 12.5 kilometre Main Range Trail. At the beginning of the Trail Heads there is a scenic boardwalk called the Snowgums Boardwalk with an observation tower to view the Main Range of the New South Wales Alps and Mount Kosciuszko.
