NSW is home to three fantastic ski resorts, including the largest ski resort in the Southern Hemisphere. These resorts in the Snowy Mountains offer a range of fantastic winter activities including downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, snowboarding and night skiing.
Whether you're a beginner snowboarder or an experienced skier, the beautiful snowfields and spectacular scenery will captivate you. The snow season runs from June to October, with July and August the most popular months.
The Kosciuszko National Park, which is named after Australia's highest peak, is also a popular destination in warmer months. You can try hiking, horse riding, kayaking and fishing, or attend one of the many festivals and events including Batlow Apple Blossom Festival and the Snowy Mountains Trout Festival.
Thredbo is home to Australia's longest ski run and highest lifted point. Hosting events such as night skiing, family fun nights, and weekly fireworks and flare runs, there is plenty to see and do at Thredbo from sunrise to sunset.
Perisher is comprised of four areas - Perisher Valley, Blue Cow, Smiggin Holes and Guthega. Each has its own highlights, including Australia's only superpipe at Perisher Valley and splendid views of the mountain range at Guthega.
