Getting to the Snowy Mountains

Surrounding the park are charming towns, with Jindabyne, Berridale and Cooma to the east, Bombala and Delegate in the south, and Adaminaby and Tumut in the north.

There are a number of ways to get to the Snowy Mountains, with increased transport services throughout the snow season from June to October.

 

Drive

From Adaminaby and Khancoban into Kosciuszko National Park, Delegate in the south, Bombala from the coast and Michelago to Cooma in the north. It’s a five hour drive from Sydney and only two hours from Canberra to the heart of the region.

Flying

Fly into Canberra from most capital cities, or direct to Cooma with Regional Express (REX) airlines, with year-round return flights from Sydney into Snowy Mountains Airport. Private shuttle services are available from the airports.

Train and Coach

There are a variety of coach operators with services from Sydney and Canberra to Jindabyne, Thredbo and Perisher. NSW TrainLink rail and coach services operate between Sydney and Cooma, Jindabyne and Bombala, via Canberra, and Tumut and Tumbarumba too.
