Snowy Mountains

Snowy Mountains:
In winter, the snowy slopes offer skiing and snowboarding at levels to suit everyone. At other times of the year, you can explore the mountains by horse or on foot along the many trails. Fish the sparkling lakes and streams. Search for platypus, laze in thermal pools, try white water rafting or go mountain biking down some of the steepest slopes in the country.

Visit Snowy Mountains:
In winter (June to October) the ski resorts at Thredbo, Perisher and Mount Selwyn come alive. In summer, Kosciuszko National Park is perfect for bush walking, mountain biking, trout fishing and horse riding.

Located 51km northwest of Cooma and 453km southwest of Sydney, Adaminaby is a popular destination with people fishing for trout around Lake Eucumbene.

The tiny settlement of Berridale calls itself Crossroads of the Snowy because, when miners were making their way to the goldfields at Adaminaby and Kiandra from the port at Twofold Bay, they passed through Berridale. Today it's the skiers who pass through on their way to the snowfields of Thredbo and Perisher Valley.

Snowy River Winery:
After 20 years of playing host to the tourist trade, Berridale's Snowy River Winery have closed their restaurant and tasting rooms to concentrate on producing the premium quality cool climate desert wine that they are renowned for.

Located 504km south west of Sydney and 81km south of Cooma, Bombala is a small and attractive rural service centre located in the far south east corner of New South Wales. The main road from Cooma to the coast does not pass through Bombala and therefore the town has remained relatively untouched.

Charlotte Pass: Kosciusko Chalet:
At 1760 metres, Charlotte Pass Village is the highest resort in Australia and is snowbound for most of the ski season. The Kosciusko Chalet is a Bavarian style hotel offering ski packages. Your Kosciusko Chalet Snow Holiday begins when you board the Skitube mountain train at Bullocks Flat for the amazing journey to Perisher Valley, then transfer to the tracked SnowCat on an 8km oversnow adventure to Charlotte Pass Village.

Cooma Town:
The CoomaTown site provides information on businesses and the community of the Cooma Monaro.

Visit Cooma:
No trip to the Snowy Mountains would be complete without a few days spent in Cooma. Cooma's central location makes it a great base for exploring the region. The Snowy Mountains Scheme, ski resorts, lakes and rural areas are all a leisurely drive away.

Eucumbene Lodge:
Offering some of the best trout fishing in Australia, Eucumbene Lodge is situated on the shores of Lake Eucumbene, just across the dam wall at Eucumbene Cove.

Guthega QuickTime:
Guthega is a very historical and unique alpine village. Its two T Bars, 1 J Bar and Double Chair combine to offer access to almost 20 different runs for all standards. Guthega is an especially popular area with local skiers and boarders. View the QickTime panorama.

Guthega Trail Map:
Enjoy the variety of runs from Mt Blue Cow (1994m) down to Guthega Alpine Village (1640m).

Jindabyne Holiday Park:
Whether you are a skier, angler, bushwalker, mountain biker or sightseer, Jindabye Holiday Park can provide a comfortable and affordable base for your holiday activities.

Jindabyne Tourist Information:
Tourist information for Jindabyne, the Snowy Mountains and surrounding region; including an accommodation directory and activity guide.

Khancoban Lakeside:
The picturesque lakeside village of Khancoban is nestled in a lush valley amongst the foothills of the magnificent Snowy Mountains, right on the edge of the Kosciuszko National Park.

Khancoban Trail Rides:
Khancoban trail rides offer 2-10 day horseback safaris through a variety of spectacular mountain country. Horseback Safari departures are usually subject to a minimum of 6 bookings and run from December to April.

Selwyn Snowfields:
Located in the Northern section of Kosciuszko National Park, 7km from Kiandra and 14km from Australia's highest town, Cabramurra, Selwyn Snowfields is drive-in snow sport at it's best, with the car park only a snowball's throw from the ski slopes and Selwyn Centre.

Nimmitabel Motel:
Located off the highway on Stanton Street, at the northern end of the village, all ten rooms have a sunny northern outlook towards the dividing range.

Perisher in Summer:
Ride the Skitube alpine railway from Bullocks Flat to Perisher Blue and then on to Blue Cow Mountain. From there you can visit The Summit Gallery and enjoy the views from the Bistro. For bushwalkers, trails lead you to some of the most spectacular lookouts and picnic points in the Snowy region.

Perisher Ski Resort:
Essential information for planning an Australian winter ski or snowboard holiday in Perisher Blue Ski Resort.

Perisher Valley:
The first ski lodges in the valley opened in 1951 and by 1957 there were a number of ski clubs operating. Since then it has continued to grow so that today it is widely regarded as the premier ski spot in the Snowy Mountains. Unlike Thredbo though, it is not a 12 months of the year resort and looks a little like a ghost town during the summer months.

Kosciusko Mountain Retreat:
Stay at Australia's highest all season family holiday park in Sawpit Creek -- at 1,200 metres altitude, in world heritage listed Kosciuszko National Park. Conveniently located midway between the township of Jindabyne (14km) and Australia's largest ski resort, Perisher Blue (15km).

Smiggin Holes: Heidi's Chalet:
On snow accommodation opposite the ski lifts at Smiggins, Heidi's Chalet features a guest lounge and a cocktail bar with cosy fire place where you can relax and meet the other guests.

Australia's premier snow sports resort also has a lot to offer in the Summer, when the natural beauty will inspire you to lace up your hiking boots or hop on a mountain bike and explore Australia's High Country.
