Getting to Snowy Mountains
Best of the Snowys
Kosciuszko National Park's alpine environment makes it a popular, year-round destination for anyone who loves the great outdoors. In summer, spring and autumn, adventurers head to the region to go hiking, kayaking and mountain-biking. In winter, it's popular with downhill and cross-country skiers and boarders who head to Thredbo, Perisher, and Selwyn snowfields, all located within the park.
Getting to the Snowy Mountains
Its easy to get to the Snowy Mountains by car, coach and train. During the snow season, from June to October, the region is at its most popular, so make your transport and accommodation plans ahead of travel.
Jindabyne, the closest town to Kosciuszko National Park, is an excellent base for exploring the region. The town is a five-and-a-half-hour drive from Sydney, and an additional 40 minutes to Thredbo and Perisher. Plenty of bus and coach services operate between the town and the snowfields.
From Melbourne, Thredbo is about seven hours by car. Check with Live Traffic NSW before setting off, as sections of the road can be closed due to weather conditions.
Tumut is the northern gateway to the Snowy Mountains, with regular CountryLink rail/coach services from Sydney and Melbourne. Its an easy one hours drive from here to the Selwyn Snowfields. As there is no accommodation on this part of the mountain, many people choose to stay in the nearby townships of Adaminaby or Talbingo, a short 30 to 40 minute drive from the slopes.
Regular flights and intercity trains connect Canberra with other major cities. From Canberra airport and major city bus terminals, frequent winter bus services make the two-and-a-half-hour journey to Perisher and Thredbo.
Alpine touring is very popular along the Kosciuszko Alpine Way and the Snowy Valleys Way. Note that special regulations apply in winter within Kosciuszko National Park. If youre driving a two-wheel-drive vehicle, you must carry snow chains from the June long weekend to the October long weekend. Be sure to check the Bureau of Meteorology weather reports for the Snowy Mountains before setting off, as well as traveller information at Transport for NSW.
