Planning a holiday in the mountainous regions of Australia? We would recommend the Snowy Mountains. The Snowy Mountains has some of the most invigorating and adventurous alpine beauties, along with the highest peak of Australia, Mt. Kosciuszko. The Snowy Mountains also features a beautiful panorama of glacial lakes and rivers along with adventurous activities such as snowboarding and skiing. Have a look at some of the top attractions and activities in the Snowy Mountains.

Hiking in Kosciuszko National Park

If you are looking for some fresh and pure mountainous environment with spectacular alpine views, Kosciuszko National Park is the perfect place to be. The best time to visit the national park is from December to March. Mount Kosciuszko Summit Walk is an experience not to be missed where you will see some of the most magnificent views of the landscape. Apart from hiking, there are various other adventurous activities such as mountain biking, horse-riding, caving, camping and kayaking.

Fishing at the Lake

The Snowy Mountains’ pristine waters are perfect for angling and fishing, due to the abundance of fish species such as rainbow trout, brook and Atlantic salmon, to name a few. Cast your line at any of the lakes and rivers in the area such as the Thredbo River, Lake Jindabyne, the Tumut River and Lake Eucumbene. Remember to get the NSW fishing license before the fishing expedition.

Skiing in Selwyn Snowfields

Talbingo is one of the best places for snowboarding or skiing at Selwyn. The ski slopes are not just meant for skiing during the day. In fact, at night the slopes seem more breathtaking. Most of the resorts in The Snowy Mountains also offer night skiing opportunities, for skiers of all abilities. The night skiing usually starts at 6 PM and closes at 9 PM.

Explore Villages and Towns

Whether you are a history and culture buff or a food lover, you will have a great time exploring the neighbouring villages and historical towns such as Tumbarumba, Nimmitabel, Dalgety, and Cooma. Here, we would like to tell you that Jindabyne, a town near the Thredbo, Perisher and Charlotte ski resorts has a number of cafes and fine dining restaurants.
