Welcome to the Snowy Mountains. Locally known as “The Snowies”, these alpine peaks are located in the Australian Alps and should be the next place on your holiday destination checklist. Just browse Wotif’s great deals on Snowy Mountains holiday packages and book one immediately. And when we say immediately, we mean right this second .
Before booking one of our Snowy Mountains packages, be sure to figure out how you’re going to get there. The mountains are both a good distance from Sydney and Melbourne, so flying in is a great option. From there, book Snowy Mountains car hire and make one of the more scenic drives on the continent. Be sure to pack some chains—the snowy conditions can make driving slightly difficult.
Let’s be real, you’re going to a place called the Snowy Mountains because you want to go skiing. And that’s fantastic! Grab a set of skis, some poles, throw on a pair of goggles and make your way to the Perisher Resort. There are four villages to choose from here: Perisher Valley, Smiggin Holes, Guthega, and Blue Cow. All of them will let you hurtle down snowy slopes at Mach 38.
But hey, we understand that not everybody is Lydia Lassila, and if you fall into that category, no problem. There’s all sorts of stuff to do here when there’s no snow on the ground. Head to the Thredbo ski area and get yourself a mountain bike for a day of epic trail riding. Are you a novice? Never fear there are trails for all levels of riders.
But going on Snowy Mountains holidays aren’t as much fun unless you live a little, so point those two rugged wheels downhill and cross one of the many suspension bridges. Don’t look down.
Ah, who are we kidding? You’re into the snow stuff. Remember that movie Cool Runnings ? You can live it for real by going on an exciting bobsled adventure. The Thredbo Bobsled is a great way to get the butterflies fluttering in your stomach. What’s better than racing down an icy hill at death-defying speeds while hanging on for dear life during holidays to Snowy Mountains? Squadoosh, that’s what!
If you thought our deals on trips to the winter wonderland were spectacular, wait until you check out our offers on Canberra holiday packages. Leave potential frostbite behind and make the two-and-a-half-hour drive to Australia’s capital city. Visit Parliament House, the Australian War Memorial and Canberra Museum and Gallery. Believe us when we say it’s worth a day trip.
Enough dilly-dallying already. Scroll through Wotif’s incredible list of Snowy Mountains package deals and book yours now. It’s time you get high in the mountains.
