There is nothing in Australia quite like the iconic Snowy Mountains region. Like the name suggests, it’s famous for its magical winter season (June to October) when the local townships and alpine resorts are buzzing with revellers enjoying exhilarating snow experiences, family fun, entertainment, events and much more.
Many don’t realise however that during the spring, summer and autumn months, the Snowy Mountains is also an outdoor adventure playground. When the snow melts, the high-altitude landscapes, lakes and waterways provide the perfect natural setting for an action-packed escape.
Visitors can trek to Australia’s highest peak, Mt Kosciuszko; discover world-class road cycling and mountain bike riding; bushwalking, hiking and running; fly fishing; water-sports and horse riding in vast mountain ranges, fertile valleys, the magnificent Kosciuszko National Park and around the region’ s welcoming communities.
It’ s not just all for the thrill-seekers though. The Snowy Mountains is home to a variety of great restaurants and cafes, renowned cold climate wines, beer and schnapps, arts and crafts and excellent shopping.
The Snowy Mountains is many destinations wrapped into one unique location. Be swept away by adrenalin action or escape and simply relax enjoying crystal clear air, pure water, brilliant sunshine, vibrant colours and great high country hospitality.
