Snowy Mountains: a winter wonderland
From thrilling downhill slopes on pristine snow, beautiful resorts with glorious mountain views, magnificent glacial lakes, lively music festivals and superb dining and wine tasting, the Snowy Mountains is a winter wonderland. It’s also home to Australia’s highest mountain – the spectacular Mount Kosciuszko. Immerse yourself in snow play, build a snowman and admire the stunning alpine setting.
Located within Kosciuszko National Park in the Snowy Mountains, NSW has three snow resorts – Perisher, Thredbo and Charlotte Pass – each with amazing slopes and impressive views. Surrounding the park are pretty towns, with Tumbarumba in the west, Tumut in the north, and Jindabyne and Cooma in the east. The snow season starts in June but runs until October so you can enjoy fantastic skiing and snowboarding conditions during spring.
