5 Spots to Visit in The Snowy Mountains

The Snowy Mountains might paint a picture of snow-capped mountains (and for some of the year you’d be right), but this corner of NSW isn’t only a destination for thrill-seekers and ski-bunnies. It is also home to some of Australia’s most picturesque natural landscapes and makes for a fine family holiday or romantic getaway. Read on for our five spots to add to your “must visit” list.
 
Kosciuszko National Park
Home to several of Australia’s most popular ski destinations, Kosciuszko National Park isn’t just a winter destination. Camp, hike, ski or enjoy a romantic weekend for two all year round. The park is a certified eco-tourism destination and home to Australia’s highest mountain.

Yarrangobilly Caves

A visit to Yarrangobilly Caves is like a walk back in time as you explore limestone caves from several millions to a few hundred thousand years old. Take a guided tour, walk the 470 metre self-guided South Glory Cave, or spend some time in the naturally-formed thermal pools.

Gaden Trout Hatchery
For the keen angler, Gaden Trout Hatchery is a chance to get up close and see first-hand how premier sport fish are bred and raised. Take a guided tour (at 10am and 2pm daily) or self-explore the aquariums of Atlantic salmon, brook trout, brown trout and rainbow trout and day-dream about hooking one of these on a line.

Snowy Hydro Discovery Centre
The Snowy Hydro Scheme helped shaped Australia with its design helping counteract the effects of severe drought along the Murray Darling Basin. Show the kids this engineering feat for the electricity and water industries with hands-on exhibits and interactive displays.
 
Perisher
Australia’s favourite ski-fields, located within the Kosciuszko National Park, are a snow-filled wonderland for the whole family. Ski seasons kicks off from early June and their snow school passes teach first-timers and those needing a skill refresher, plus there’s a range of activities for kids and teens!
