Thredbo hosts highest Australia Day celebrationsTo kick off the long weekend, on Australia Day everyone should head to the top of Mt Kosciuszko to experience a unique poetry recital at Australia's highest point. At 12 noon at 2228 Metres above sea level local orator Nick Kirshner will be standing proud and will recite two Aussie Classics - Banjo Patterson’s ‘The Man from Snowy River’ and Dorothea Mackellar’s ‘My Country’. Iconic Australia Poetry in one of the country’s most iconic locations. It’s an experience that should not be missed. Everyone who leaves from Thredbo to head to the top of Mt Kosciuszko will receive a KOSI AUSSIE pack including their own flag to fly at the summit and an 'I climbed Kosi on Aussie Day' certificate.
