The NSW Snowy Mountains is a spectacular destination whether covered in white powder during the ski season or splendid in wildflowers and sunshine in spring and summer!

Jindabyne, Cooma, Adaminaby, Eucumbene, Thredbo, Perisher, Charlotte Pass, Selwyn.

Famous for …

Home to Australia’s five highest peaks, including Mt Kosciuszko, and incredible alpine wilderness areas, the Snowy Mountains is famous as the ski capital of NSW from June to October each year. But despite its name, the Snowy Mountains offers plenty of action and excitement for families in the ‘green season’ too!
