Snow Mountain, located in the Snowy Mountains, is in a unique position for a national parks site.
A National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) ranger has just given Snow Mountain a new name, “Barry’s Peak”.
A visitor to the popular mountain, known as “The Snow Mountain”, takes in the view of Mount Everest’s base.
It’s a place of breathtaking beauty and awe, and one that’s been described as “the most remote of all the national parks in Australia”.
The ranger said the name was chosen because the park’s “cultural history and landscape” meant it was the perfect place to call Barry’s Peak.
The Ranger also told ABC News that the mountain was one of the most remote areas in Australia, and that Barry’s peak is the only place on the planet where a person can be “safely out of the city”.
“This is a place where we really can’t do anything without being very, very careful.
So, Barry’s is a very important place,” the ranger said.
“I think it is a good name for the park.”
A ranger with the NPWS says Barry’s Mountain, where the Mount Everest base is located, is one of Australia’s most remote national parks.
He is proud of the park.
We do have a great place for a visitor to visit, the ranger says.
But there are still places that are a bit more remote, he says.
“There’s a very old town at the bottom of the mountain.
It’s very isolated, it’s very dark, there’s a lot of rock out there and you can’t go out into the night.”
Mountaineering enthusiasts are not surprised by the change, and the ranger is excited about it.
“[Mountaineers] can go out, they can go to a local pub or a local restaurant and have a meal and then go home, and then they go back to camp and come back again for the night,” he said.
“It’s not only for climbers, but for mountaineers, it is for all the other mountaineering people out there.”
