  1. Hi Paul
    Prior to SOTA I had walked the express track and the Main Range 22 km route on five separate occasions. I use the Canberra Day public holiday in March as the regular pilgrimage to Mt Kosciuszko. Yes looking forward to activating SM-001.

  2. Hi Andrew,
    It will be a milestone when Mt Kosciuszko is activated. I see the easiest walk is from Thredbo, a 6.5 km walk.
    Also an interesting side note is that Australia’s highest public loo is located on the summit.
    Best 73,

    Paul,
