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.

It’s a five hour drive from Sydney and only two hours from Canberra to the heart of the region.
