Getting to Snowy Mountains
Best of the Snowies
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, Charlotte Pass and Selwyn snowfields, all located within the park.

Cooma is the largest town in the region. The 460-km drive from Sydney passes through beautiful countryside, farmland and small towns. In the snow season, there are regular coaches from Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne. Brindabella Airlines flies to nearby Snowy Mountains Airport.
