Head to Olsens lookout in Kosciuszko National Park for a unique, uninterrupted view of the western fall of Main Range. Here, the majestic tall mountain ash forest retreats to give way to jagged rock above the alpine tree line. The lookout is nestled in a tranquil bush setting, complete with picnic tables so you can sit and enjoy a bite surrounded by these spectacular views.
While you’re there, see if you can pick the call of one of the best mimics of all birds, the superb lyrebird. These birds are active during the day, and their tell-tale scratchings often cover the path with bush litter.
