Mount Kosciuszko is a mountain located on the Main Range of the Snowy Mountains in Kosciuszko National Park, part of the Australian Alps National Parks and Reserves, in New South Wales, Australia and is located west of Crackenback and close to Jindabyne.
With a height of 2,228 metres (7,310 ft) above sea level, it is the highest mountain in mainland Australia. Various measurements of the peak originally called Kosciuszko showed it to be slightly lower than its neighbour, Mount Townsend. The names of the mountains were swapped by the New South Wales Lands Department in 1892 so that Mount Kosciuszko remains the name of the highest peak of Australia, and Mount Townsend ranks as second. The 1863 picture by Eugene von Guerard hanging in the National Gallery of Australia titled "Northeast view from the northern top of Mount Kosciusko" is actually from Mount Townsend.
There's a trail called Kosciuszko Walk leading to the summit. Mount Kosciuszko is one of the 1 peaks along the Mount Kosciuszko Summit Walk.
The nearest mountain hut is Seamans Hut located 1 863m/6 113ft ENE of the summit.
