More information about this region of Snowy Mountains.
For a natural high, you can't top the Snowy Mountains. During winter the region is an alpine wonderland - offering the best skiing in Australia. In summer, escape the coastal heat and chill out exploring the pristine mountain scenery while staying in comfortable chalets and country-style B&Bs.
Australia's High Country is a great all-year-round holiday destination.
Serious adrenaline-seekers will thrive on the challenging mountain treks, cross country skiing and heart-stopping downhill runs. The more sedate will enjoy exploring the wildflower-strewn high plains during summer, either on foot or on horseback.
In winter (June to October), the ski resorts at Thredbo, Perisher and Mount Selwyn come alive. Each offers fast-paced action for experienced skiers and gentler slops and classes for novice skiers. Family skiing and cross-country skiing are also excellent. Apres-ski entertainment at all the ski resorts is action of a different kind and varied to suit all tastes.
Not everything comes to a stop when the snow melts. You can enjoy the village atmosphere, night spots and log fires at any time. In summer, Kosciuszko National Park is perfect for bush walking, mountain biking, trout fishing and horse riding. Take one of the special mountain bike trails or walk on "the roof of Australia".
Jindabyne, Cooma and Berridale have all sorts of accommodation, ski hire, crafts and tours to historic sites including Australia's High Country wilderness.
Excitement and adventure at your fingertips in Australia's High Country in every season ... experience it with the real intimacy of a B&B!
