Charlotte Pass

Charlotte Pass is the highest paved road in Australia

Charlotte Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.840m (6,037ft) above the sea level, located in New South Wales, in Australia. It’s said to be the highest road of the continent drivable on a car. It's one of the highest roads of the country.

Tucked away in the Snowy Mountains, the road to the summit is totally paved. It’s called Kosciuszko Road. The summit hosts a ski resort. Starting from Jindabyne, the road to the pass is 39.7 km (24.66 miles) long. The drive offers stunning views of Australia’s highest mountains.The pass is located in the Kosciuszko National Park and provides access to some of Australia's highest alpine terrain and was formerly a stop off point for public vehicular access to Mount Kosciuszko, though the road now terminates at the pass.
