When I return to Thredbo and the Snowy Mountains I always get a beautiful warm feeling in my heart because I am coming home. It’s a feeling that the people who live in this wonderful place want to share with you
The Snowy Mountains region is unlike any other. From dramatic summits to breathtaking ravines, challenging adventure to tranquil solitude; its capacity for contrasts never ceases to surprise and inspire. Now’s the time to discover the Snowies for yourself.
The easiest way to experience the incredible terrain is at ground level – leave Canberra by car or motorcycle and be in the Snowy Mountains in an hour.
Once you’re here, explore the region via a network of roads, boasting diverse and spectacular scenery. Don’t forget to check the seasonal information if travelling in winter.
Fly into Canberra from most capital cities, or direct to Cooma with Regional Express (REX) airlines, who conduct year-round return flights from Sydney into Snowy Mountains Airport.
