About the Snowy Mountains
Mountain air in the Snowy Mountains doesn't come any purer than this. Add an endless list of adventure activities, from winter sports to cycling, caving, rafting, kayaking and horse riding – plus bracing mountain walks – and you'll find your stay very exhilarating. A highlight is fishing for trout in mountain streams, crisp lakes and deep dams (fishing licence required).
In winter, there's night skiing, downhill or cross-country skiing, snowboarding and tobogganing. All four NSW snow resorts are within Kosciuszko National Park; they cater for new skiers and boarders, those who are experienced skiers and family groups. They are Thredbo, Perisher, Charlotte Pass and Selwyn Snowfields.
During summer, hiking to Kosciuszko peak is spectacular, with breathtaking views of this unique ecosystem. Australia's highest mountain, Mt Kosciuszko, looks down on sub-alpine snowgum woodlands and tall forests of alpine ash and mountain gum.
