SNOWY MOUNTAINS.

What’s On… FEBRUARY

A growing number of holidaymakers, adventurers and tourers have discovered that the Snowy Mountains offers much more than expected, all year round. Although mostly recognised for its winter sports and alpine resorts, “the Snowies”, as it’s affectionately known, is fast becoming a playground for those interested in something uniquely different.

s e i r o m e m f o mountains SNOWY MOUNTAINS.

The most memorable holidays are usually the ones that surprise. We had so many great family adventures in the Snowies, and are proud to share our experiences with you…enjoy!

The Robinson Family

It all started when talking to some friends about the need to get away from it all and we wanted to do something different with the kids for our next holiday. They suggested visiting the Snowy Mountains and from that point there was no turning back. The one thing that stands out in all our memories is just how surprised we were at the variety of things to do; not to mention the uncrowded lakes and rivers that despite all expectations were warm to swim in. On the list of our favourite moments would have to be standing on top of Mt Kosciuszko. The view along the way and from the peak is truly spectacular and it wasn’t all that hard to get to. From the top of the Thredbo chairlift it’s an easy 6km walk that the whole family could do. We purchased a Thredbo all day activity pass that included rides on the chairlift and bobsled. At the end of the day we cooled off in the pool at the leisure centre and the kids tackled ‘Mission Inflatable’. Bike rides on the village trails in and around Thredbo are a must but for something a little less strenuous you can’t go past a ride around Lake Jindabyne’s foreshore pathway.

Our must do’s in the Snowies Take a Discovery Tour with a real Kosciuszko National Park Ranger. They know so much about the park and with their experience in the bush environment you couldn’t be in better hands.

The kids get to make traditional Aboriginal style jewellery and you can try real bush tucker. We discovered you can purchase a day activity pass for Lake Crackenback Resort that includes activities like canoeing, paddle boating, archery, golf, trampolining and access to the mountain bike and walking trails. We highly recommend the ‘Spotlight Dusk Tour’, which is a guided walk around the bush at dusk seeking out native animals like possums, wombats and kangaroos. Learn everything there is to know about trout on the banks of the Thredbo River at the Gaden Trout Hatchery. We all went fishing for trout, and the kids had just as much fun feeding them.

Drive out to Yarrangobilly Caves which is about half way between Adaminaby, home of the world’s largest trout, and Tumut. Do a self guided tour of the Glory Arch Cave and then go on a guided tour of Jillabenan Cave which is like walking into a huge sparkling jewel box. If you get the opportunity, pack a picnic and take a dip in the thermal pools. Also see the Boggy Creek Show in Tumbarumba, for a taste of the real Man from Snowy River.

We were really surprised with the many things to do with the kids. Watersports are one of the best kept secrets and we’ll be bringing the boat with us next time.

While in Cooma enjoy the countryside on a round trip to Bunyan aboard an early 1900’s train from the Cooma Historic Railway. Then go on to visit the Cooma NSW Correctional Centre Museum where the kids learn about the history of prisons, from convict days to now, in a real working jail. Stop and learn about the Snowy Mountains Scheme at the Snowy Hydro Discovery Centre. Lot’s to see and do there for everyone. On our next trip we’re definitely going to include a visit to the Murray One Power Station and Visitors Centre at Khancoban.

The Snowies is our place for adventure. We visited the Snowy Mountains in summer for the first time over four years ago and have been going back ever since. The mountain biking is what got us hooked but that’s not all you can do. Here’s a bit of what we get up to… John and Lisa

If you ski or board during winter you’ll be surprised how stunning the mountains are during the summer months without the snow; full of colourful wildflowers and so many things to do.

Our favourite time is autumn, with warm days and cool nights it’s the best weather for riding, hiking, fishing and water sports. Being keen mountain bikers we never miss an opportunity to ride the many trails that extend across the entire Snowy Mountains. Lake Crackenback Resort alone has over 20kms of trails and there are about 20 different rides to choose from in the Kosciuszko National Park plus others exist in the Bago State Forest. Our last trip we did the Long Plain ride, it passes those historical huts and homesteads you see and hear about. For downhill mountain bikers, Thredbo is the only place in NSW where you can catch a chairlift to the top and ride back down. They have other more gentle trails but conquering the downhill track is a favourite. Since becoming Snowies regulars, the idea of camping overnight near Mt Kosciuszko was something we always wanted to do. We’ve dreamed of camping out under the stars and last year booked a Kosciuszko Alpine Guided Walk. Just picture walking all day across the Main Range, arriving at your campsite on sunset and being greeted with dinner and your tent already set up for a well earned nights rest.

xperience www.snowymountains.com.au/shareyoure

The wide range of water sports on offer is another big surprise to most. White water rafting on the rivers is a favourite for the adventure seekers but there’s also canoeing, kayaking, windsurfing, sailing, wakeboarding, water skiing and power boating on the many inland lakes. There is a huge variety of places to get wet. Whether you are a nervous beginner or seasoned in the saddle there’s no better place to experience horse riding than in the heart of Man from Snowy River country. You can ride along trails, across creek beds, river crossings and even climb up and down ravines just like in the movie. Next year I’ll be getting the girls together for a fully catered 2-3 day horse trek run by Snowy River Horseback Adventures.

If you’re after something a little more relaxing then a fly-fishing lesson could be more your pace. The Snowy Mountains is renowned for having the most pristine waters in Australia especially for fishing brown, rainbow and brook trout. John took a lesson the first time we came here and makes an effort to improve his skills on each trip.

The Snowies has a variety of hikes and walks suited to all abilities. The most popular is the walk out to Mt Kosciuszko. Thredbo do up to four guided treks a week including a special sunset walk to Mt Kosciuszko. There are a variety of longer treks out and around the glacial lakes, the only place in Australia you will find them, and a favourite for climbers are the towering granite tors.

SNOWY MOUNTAINS.

We take a few road trips each year, often via Tourist Drives recommended by friends we meet along the way. It is our pleasure to recommend a couple of little gems we discovered in the Snowies. Judy and Mick

KOSCIUSZKO Alpine Way

The Kosciuszko Alpine Way drive begins as you leave Canberra when the Brindabella Ranges come into view. Stop at The Lott Food Store in Cooma; a 100 year old woolshed that serves great local food. Stroll along the mosaic time walk before browsing local art and craft at the Raglan Gallery. The view to Lake Jindabyne is truly spectacular as you drive in. The road follows the lake until you cross the Snowy River on the dam wall before arriving into Jindabyne. From Jindabyne, as you head up the Alpine Way, the approach to Thredbo gives you the first feeling of the high country. Along the way be sure to taste Wildbrumby Schnapps and stay in a boutique B&B or a 4.5 Star Resort in the Crackenback Valley. On the other side of Thredbo you cross the Great Dividing Range at Dead Horse Gap – watching out for brumbies – and from here you descend through the Kosciuszko National Park into picturesque Khancoban.

Visit the Murray 1 Power Station and Visitor Centre for an interactive display on the Snowy Hydro Scheme. Stop at panoramic Scammell Spur Lookout which has the most vertical view of Australia.

Catch a trout on Lake Jindabyne, it’s the same size as Sydney Harbour.

Geehi – explore the hut built from stones handpicked from Swampy Plains River.

Tom Groggin Picnic Area – see the many kangaroos.

Granite

Stop at Thredbo; an ambient European style alpine village. Head up the chairlift to Eagles Nest, Australia’s highest restaurant, for its amazing views!

Heading south on the Hume Highway , you enter the scenic Snowy Valleys Way drive at Gundagai – home of the famous Dog on the Tucker Box! Stop at Tumut River to stretch your legs, try to spot a satin bower bird on the wetl ands. The most charming part of the driv e is the stunning views of rolling green coun try against the Snowy Mountains betw een Tumut and Tumbarumba. The land scape is dotted with orchards, vineyards and roadside stalls selling figs, apples and whateve r else is in season. Along the way, stop at the Pioneer Women’s Hut displaying some of Australia’s pion eering history. Sampling of the region’s fine wines is a must as is seeing a Boggy Creek Show in Tumbarumba – an entertaining 2 hour experience of horsemanship and mou ntain life by a 4th generation cattleman.

SNOWY MOUNTAINS.

“With fresh mountain air and clear mountain water the Snowy Mountains region provides a pure environment to produce beautiful local food and wine.” Matt Dowdney Owner The Lott Food Group Cooma Whether you’re seeking a casual bite, a gourmet dining experience or roaming the countryside looking for different tastes the Snowies offers something for everyone.

For a real Snowies culinary experience book an overnight stay at Snowy Wilderness and try the traditional bush camp oven under the stars.

Country pub’s are all kid friendly and some have dedicated play areas. Another family favourite is Sundance Bakehouse in Jindabyne and the Crackenback Cottage Restaurant that has the largest outdoor wooden maze in the southern hemisphere.

Real foodies shouldn’t miss ‘Tumbafest’ where you can join the Tumbarumba locals celebrating the outstanding food, wine, arts, crafts and music of the region.

For something different try a Persian mezze plate at Cafe Darya in Jindabyne or Nest Cafe in Tumbarumba who use select local produce, you can also have dinner served in a recliner in their cosy 24-seat cinema. Dine in style with spectacular views at either Cuisine on Lake Crackenback, The Denman in Thredbo or tapas at Journey Food and Wine in Jindabyne.

Local eating is just that in the Snowies, you’ll be surprised at the range of locally produced products you’ll sample along the way. The Tumut Region boasts a wide range of produce including delicious figs, luscious stone fruits and the famous Batlow royal gala and pink lady apples. Whether dining out or shopping for ingredients, you must try Snowy Mountains Trout. Smoked locally in Tumut you will find it readily available on local menus and can be bought in local butchers and supermarkets. Another trophy on the regions menu is Hobbit Farm Goats Cheese. Their recipe originated from a farm in western France and they produce fresh curd and goat cheese of different ages and tastes.

10

Gourmet Snowy Mountains Cookies are available in cafes throughout Australia and served on Qantas flights. Visit the factory in Jindabyne to see how they’re made and buy some imperfects! Enjoy the cookies with a Snowy Mountains Coffee, roasted in Cooma. Beloka Water is bottled at the source near Dalgety; this natural mineral water is available locally and in cafes and restaurants across Sydney and Canberra.


Beer lovers be sure to stop by the Kosciuszko Brewery at Banjo Paterson Inn in Jindabyne, where master brewer Chuck Hahn is producing an awesome ale that reflects the purity and spirit of the Australian Alps. Marrying his love of fine beers and skiing from his early years in Colorado, Chuck has developed Kosciuszko Pale Ale. All good beer has a story and this mountain ale is brewed in honour of the pioneering explorer, Edmund Strzelecki who first ascended Australia’s highest peak, Mt Kosciuszko and named the mountain in honour of the Polish freedom fighter Thaddeus Kosciuszko. Cheers.

Throughout the year thousands of visitors take the Wollondibby Road turn off along the Alpine Way to visit the Wildbrumby Distillery. Sculptures adorn the grounds leading to the home of Wild Brumby Schnapps and Kosciuszko Vodka 101. Made with the highest quality local fruit it is the only true schnapps distillery in Australia. Visit the distillery cafe for European inspired fare, tastings and cellar door sales. The distillery is the inspiration of artist and son of a fruit seller Brad and his wife Monika whose grandfather distilled schnapps in Austria long before she was born.

Also to be found in the Snowy Mountains is Australia’s coolest and most picturesque vineyards of the Tumbarumba Region. The alpine climate is perfect for the production of premium quality sparkling and top end table wines and the region is home to numerous award winning wineries.
