Valentine’s Day Walk Highlights
Being in Thredbo over the Valentine’s Day period is a treat. It’s not crowded around the village, the weather is usually lovely in February with warm days and just a hint of a chill in the in the evening. There’s plenty to do after your Valentine’s Day Walk as well as when you’ve completed it. Here are some of the highlights you’ll experience when you book this particular walk.
1. Walk the Roof of Australia’s Highest Peak
It’s not crowded on the walk and you will get a sense of expansive universe all around you. It is private and silent and invites reflection and retrospection, or great serotonin-fuelled conversation. Take the 13km round trip walk and be amazed at the brilliance of the space and light on top of the mountain ranges. Bring warm clothing for alpine conditions, especially for when the sun goes down.

2. Watch the Sun Set Over the Horizon
Up on Australia’s highest peak at 2228m above sea level your sense of time and space will magnify as you watch the sun silently sink beyond the horizon. Snuggle in with your partner with a hot drink provided by your guide to experience a stunning alpine sunset.

3. Stay Safe with a Local Guide
Chairlifts close at the end of the day so staying with a guide who drives you to the beginning of the walk, as well as back down again after completion, ensures walkers get there and back safely. You’ll also receive up to date information on the conditions of the track and the local environment.
