The expedition provides an opportunity for students to undertake one of the best wilderness journeys possible in Australia. Summit to Sea is a challenging expedition in which students and staff will snowshoe, walk and raft from Australia’s highest point all the way to the ocean in 21 days. This journey travels through some of the most scenic and diverse environments of South Eastern Australia.

Students begin their expedition from Australia’s rooftop, summiting Mt. Kosciusko, then journeying through the Alpine environment as winter snow begins to give way to the new growth of spring. From here the journey continues into the forests of the Snowy Mountains, on the Cascade and Ingeegoodbee trails, filled with mountain ash and wild brumbies. At the end of the first week, the students descend steadily out of the Australian Alps and find themselves in the arid Snowy River valley created in the rain shadow of the continent’s largest mountain range. By this stage the students are beginning to get into the natural rhythms of the Australian bush.

Students then get to hitch a ride on the flow of the Snowy River as it meanders it’s way south. Firstly through dry arid terrain and then into dense lush rainforest before reaching the windswept, salt drenched environment where the river meets the ocean waters of the Bass Strait.
