Located only a few kilometres from Thredbo, Dead Horse Gap crosses the Great Dividing Range at 1580 metres and is the watershed between the Thredbo Snowy System and the Murray River.

Come and enjoy the magnificent views into New South Wales and Victoria. Parking is available and access to walking tracks including the Dead Horse Gap walking track which s the ideal Snowy Mountains walk for sweeping views of the Ramshead Range, Crackenback Mountain and the Thredbo Valley, in Kosciuszko National Park.
