Oozing character and local charm, the Guthega Alpine Inn offers accommodation, dining and locally produced wines for visitors ready to hit the slopes. Located within the ski resort, the inn allows you the convenience of ski in, ski out and you can hire mountain bikes, snow shoes and fishing tackle.
Guthega is a small Snowy Mountains village on the western face of Mount Blue Cow. Smaller than the resorts at Perisher Valley and Thredbo, Guthega has a warm, welcoming community. Book your stay at the charming Guthega Alpine Inn, where you can take in spectacular mountain views overlooking Guthega Dam.
A 40-minute drive from Jindabyne, ski and snowboard runs through Guthega join with those at Perisher Valley, Mount Blue Cow and Smiggin Holes to form Australia's largest ski resort. A chairlift transports skiers and snowboarders between these areas, making Guthega an appealing base. This is also a popular starting point for alpine and cross-country skiers.
During warmer months, Guthega is a visually stunning destination for visitors looking for a relaxing break or a family-friendly adventure. Take the 5-km Illawong walk, which begins in Guthega village, winding through Kosciuszko National Park along the Snowy River valley to Illawong Hut, one of the oldest buildings in the park. You’ll also find a suspension bridge there.
The village is a haven for scenery enthusiasts – so pack your camera or your paints! Birdwatching and trout fishing are other popular pastimes.
