"The Australian Alps stretch throughout the states of New South Wales and Victoria, a curious fact about this natural wonder is that they harbor more snow than the Swiss Alps."
The Australian Alps extend across the states of New South Wales (Sydney is the capital of NSW) and Victoria (Melbourne is its capital). This continental mountain range has unique mountains over 2,000 mts high above sea level. Visiting the Alps is a perfect plan for the weekend since it is between the two most important capital cities of Australia and they are surrounded by natural parks. To hike in this beautiful place, you don’t need to have specialized gear since many of the summits are easy to reach; you may also do rock climbing.
