This is a party place, even out of season. It's energetic and fast paced. In summer the mountains are converted into mountain bike trails and the place is pretty full on. Winter has its own long list of activities of course, and I was pleasantly surprised at all the action during the supposedly inactive period. I took the cable car up to the eagles nest and then completed the walk to the summit of Mount Kosciusko . It's an easy route on a set path and anyone with any fitness level can achieve a successful result. Once done, I visited the restaurant before getting back on the cable car and it serves great fresh dishes. It's a brilliant experience and well recommended. Just beware on the roads for animals and drive carefully. It took me a few hours from Canberra and there was evidence of many animal remains along the way.
