Open year round, the Guthega Alpine Inn is a getaway rich in character and local charm. As well as accommodation, the Inn offers locally produced wines and food. A perfect spot to hit the slopes in winter, or walk the surrounding alpine scenery in the warmer months. The Inn also hires ski equipment, mountain bikes and fishing tackle.
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, with birdwatching and trout fishing among some of the popular pastimes.
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.
Book your stay at the charming Guthega Alpine Inn, where you can take in spectacular mountain views overlooking Guthega Dam.
