Perisher to Blue Cow, Kosciuszko National Park

A road walk from Perisher to Blue Cow that was nevertheless very scenic when we did it in wintery conditions in 2009. We also made a snowman and snowcat.

We’ve stayed in Perisher a few times on the first weekend of the ski season (the June long weekend). Apart from doing the Porcupine Rocks walk, we also walked once to Blue Cow in very wintery conditions. It’s along a road, so although it is recommended for summer, I think early winter before heavy snowfall is a more picturesque but still practical option.

This walk is included in the Kosciuszko southern section walks brochure, number 13. And Google seems to know the way. I’ve also included a couple of photos of snow men that a few of us made later that day. Looks like it was a good start to the ski season.

This may have been earlier on in the day before we went out for our walk. Pretty snowy!
