Australian Alps Experience
Perisher Valley Snow Resort in Australian Alps
The Australian Alps span New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory and Victoria and embraces 16 national parks and reserves. Ride a mountain bike along contour-hugging trails, bushwalk to a heritage hut or horse ride along gentle alpine tracks. Fly fish in the streams and lakes, go white water rafting, run or four wheel drive along mountain tracks to character-filled country pubs. Cross-country ski amongst the snow-gums or try the wide range of downhill ski slopes at the various ski resorts. Hike part of the Australian Alps Walking Track or take in the range-upon-range mountain views driving the Great Alpine Road
Snowy Mountains for skiing and summer adventure - See glacial lakes, snowgum woodlands and colourful alpine meadows on the climb to Mount Kosciuszko, Australia’s tallest peak. At the top you’ll find a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve with 20 species of plants found nowhere else in the world. In winter, hit Australia’s highest ski slopes at Charlotte Pass or carve up the snow at Thredbo and Perisher Blue. In summer, hike past fields of snow daisies, alpine buttercups, billy buttons and other wildflowers. Don’t miss the show of autumnal leaves around Tumut, the place to explore the huge stalactites and thermal pool of the Yarrangobilly Caves. Fish for trout from the clear streams around Tumbarumba and historic Cooma or throw your line in Lake Jindabyne. Adventure beckons across the Snowies, but Jindabyne is a great base for cycling, caving, rafting, kayaking, four wheel driving and horse riding.
High Country of powder and historic mountain towns - Ski or snowboard at Mount Hotham, Australia’s powder capital, or on the steep slopes of the winter playground of Falls Creek. Tackle winter sports, biking or four wheel driving at Mount Buller and marvel at Mount Buffalo’s unique granite beauty. Drive up to Mount McKay for some of the region’s best mountain vistas or bike, horse ride and cross-country ski on Mount Stirling. Go fishing, houseboating and waterskiing at Lake Eildon.
Namadgi Ranges: Its all about Bushland, breathtaking views and rich Aboriginal history here. Climb or abseil the granite rock outcrops of the Namadgi Ranges in Namadgi National Park. Then mountain bike along the fire trails or bushwalk into the Bimberi wilderness.
