Dalgety

On the banks of the Snowy River in the spectacular NSW Snowy Mountains, Dalgety is a small town where you can enjoy wine and beer tasting at the Snowy Vineyard and Microbrewery. The tranquil rural setting is a lovely base too for getting to the snowfields in the skiing and snowboarding season.

Accommodation options suit various budgets, from camping and caravanning to cabins and cottages. You can even stay among the vineyards in a charming cottage at the Snowy Vineyard, which produces a range of acclaimed cool-climate wines and a fine selection of small-batch craft ales.

Snowy Vineyard and Microbrewery

You’ll discover fascinating history and heritage in Dalgety, once considered the potential site for the nation’s capital. As far back as the 1840s, Dalgety served as an important river crossing for cattle and sheep. You can explore the heritage on the Dalgety Historic Town and River Walk, a delightful stroll.

The events calendar is enticing. The Dalgety Show is a traditional country show in March, with farm animals, horse jumping and plenty of fun activities for the kids. In September, you can watch the amazing skills of high-country riders and their magnificent horses at the Dalgety Team Penning.
