Why go there

Mountain air doesn’t come any purer than this. Adventure activities, from winter sports to cycling, caving, rafting, kayaking and horse riding – plus bracing mountain walks – make your stay exhilarating. Australia’s highest mountain, Mt Kosciuszko, looks down on sub-alpine snowgum woodlands and tall forests of alpine ash and mountain gum.

In winter you can go night skiing, downhill or cross-country skiing, snowboarding or tobogganing. All resorts cater for novices and experienced skiers as well as families.

In summer the Snowies are perfect for a touring holiday, perhaps staying in one of the region’s many bed-and-breakfast properties. Take in historic country towns, mountain flowers, grazing wallabies and grand scenery.

 

Don’t miss

  • Fishing for trout in mountain streams, crisp lakes and deep dams (fishing licence required).
  • Hiking to Kosciuszko peak, past glacial lakes with breathtaking views of the valleys and ranges that make up one of the world’s unique and most scenically dramatic ecosystems.
  • Tasting cool-climate wines in Tumbarumba, home to many of Australia’s best sparkling wines made from pinot noir and chardonnay.
  • Beautiful scenics hiking in the Snowy Mountains.
