We have travelled to the best snow spots in Australia to give you our top picks for your next snow holiday.
There’s nothing quite like sinking your boots into that fresh, fluffy powder winter brings. Luckily in Australia, we’ve got a few top-notch spots that transform into a winter wonderland. In New South Wales, the Snowy Mountains are home to four ski resorts. For beginners, the friendly Selwyn Snow Resort is the perfect place to get the whole family in puffer jackets and snow gear. Toboggan, ski, snowboard, snow angels - whatever your fancy, give it a go. Perisher, Thredbo and Charlotte’s Pass remain equally phenomenal, each with stunning tracks and options for all skill levels. Before you make for the mountains to ‘shred the gnar’, as the locals say, base yourself in Discovery Parks - Jindabyne or Buckenderra Holiday Village to truly experience the charming lake town atmosphere.
Not in it for sliding and gliding? Tasmania’s Cradle Mountain offers unparalleled wilderness, from rare wildlife to ancient pines and glacial lakes. A spectacle for any nature lover, the national park offers everything from lengthy hikes to easy lakeside strolls, or just a cuppa watching the snow fall. Don’t forget to spot the wombats - they’re a Tassie treasure up here.
