Alpine environments are very rare in Australia, occurring only at high elevations in the south east of NSW, north east of Victoria and part of central Tasmania. Only there can you see Australian landscapes that have been carved by glaciers.
The spine of the Kosciuszko National Park is the Main Range. This painting depicts the section from Mt Northcote to Mt Lee that shows old rounded mountains that have been scoured by glaciers, exposing the bedrock. The textures produced by the exposed rock in contrast to the alpine ground vegetation produces a scene characteristic of Kosciuszko National Park.
