The Snowy Mountains known to locals as “The Snowies”, is Australia’s premier ski resort area and home to spectacular mountain peaks in the south of New South Wales. The mountains span from Canberra to the south across Monaro Park and are best viewed in a self-drive car on Australian vacations.

Kosciuszko National Park contains the country’s highest peak, Mt. Kosciuszko 2230 metres/7250 feet high. On top of the summit, visitors will find the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve with 20 rare species of plants found only here. The park has stunning limestone caves, woodlands, glacial lakes and diverse landscapes.

On trips to Australia, the Snowies can be enjoyed all year round from skiing or snowboarding on the highest slopes at Charlotte Pass during winter to hiking the fields and seeing alpine buttercups, billy buttons and wildflowers in the summer. Other activities include bushwalking, hiking, climbing, caving, fishing and horseback riding.

One can explore using a segway at Lake Crackenback Resort and experience being 1200 metres/3900 feet above sea level while enjoying amazing views. Another highlight is the Yarrongobilly Caves which are surrounded by awe-inspiring landscapes.
