The NSW Office of Environment and Heritage has published a media release ahead of the festival.

In the release, the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) invites everyone to come and enjoy the sixth annual Kosciuszko Festival.

Here is an excerpt:

NPWS Manager for Visitor Services Andrew Harrigan says the festival celebrates culture, achievement and the environment, and offers a chance to learn more about the ties between the Snowy Mountains and Poland.

"I hope everyone will join us at an all-day picnic on April 14 at the historic St Thomas Church in Moonbah and then spend a few days exploring the high country, glorious after a wet summer," Mr Harrigan said. (…)

"Kosciuszko National Park and the Snowy Mountains provide a perfect backdrop for this annual celebration and Parks is pleased to help broaden the public's knowledge about Tadeusz Kosciuszko.

"Sir Paul Edmund Strzelecki named Australia's highest mountain after a man who fought for human rights, particularly for those suffering oppression.

"Each year K'Ozzie Fest offers a chance to enjoy the Snowy Mountains and shines a new light on our cultural heritage and I encourage everyone to come and enjoy it," Mr Harrigan said.
