Mount Kosciuszko is a mountain located in the Snowy Mountains in Kosciuszko National Park. With a height of 2228 m above sea level, it is the highest mountain in Australia (not including its external territories). It was named by the Polish explorer Count Paul Edmund Strzelecki in 1840, in honour of the Polish national hero and hero of the American Revolutionary War General Tadeusz Kościuszko, because of its perceived resemblance to the Kościuszko Mound in Kraków.
There is a road to Charlotte Pass, from which it's an 8 km walk up a path to the summit. Anyone with a modest level of fitness can walk to the top. Until 1976 it was possible to drive through Rawson Pass to within a few meters of the summit. The walking track to Mount Kosciuszko from Charlotte Pass is in fact that road, which was closed to public motor vehicle access due to environmental concerns. This track is also used by cyclists as far as Rawson Pass, where they must leave their bicycles and continue onto the summit on foot. The peak may also be approached from Thredbo, which is a shorter 6.5 kilometres, and should take approximately 3 to 3.5 hours for a round trip. It's not a difficult walk and is supported by a chairlift all-year round. From the top of the chairlift there is a raised mesh walkway to the summit to protect the native vegetation and prevent erosion. Both tracks meet at Rawson Pass for the final climb to the Kosciuszko summit. Australia's highest public toilet was built in 2007 at Rawson Pass at an altitude of 2100 meters.
