Immerse yourself in the beautiful nature of the NSW Snowy Mountains. From a platypus reserve and prehistoric caves to Australia’s highest peaks and enchanting snow gum forests, the region is full of captivating experiences and natural attractions.
Keep an eye out for the locals - echidnas, wallabies and wombats. You can spot platypus at Bombala Platypus Reserve, arrive early in the morning or late afternoon for the best chance of seeing them.
Pristine waters from melting snow flow each spring into rivers perfect for fly fishing. Take a fishing tour with Snowy Monaro Fly Fishing or improve your skills at Lure Casting School at Lake Crackenback Resort.
