The Snowy Mountains, sometimes nicknamed the
Snowies, are a region of New South Wales in Australia in the south east of the state.
The highest region in Australia and one of the cooler areas of New South Wales, they
are notable for their ski-fields and are the centre of snow sports in New South Wales. The mountains are beautiful year round and
the region annually attracts some three million visitors seeking nature-based and adventure
holidays. Whether you’re after a rugged back-to-nature experience, want to be cosseted in alpine
splendor or simply feel like going somewhere beautiful, diverse and interesting with the
whole family, the chances are high that you’ll find it in the Snowy Mountains. Attractions,
outdoor activities, tours and events – the Snowy Mountains has it all. Australia’s high country is home to spectacular
peaks, clear mountain streams and a plethora of accessible natural attractions for lovers
of the outdoors. Walking and horseriding are two great ways to explore the alpine landscape
and take in some of the country’s most impressive scenery in the warmer months. The Snowy Mountains is a significant and untamable
high country where many Australian myths and traditions of Australian identity were born.
Whether from nature’s pure beauty or legends of early settlers, there’s a story to be told
and history to be learnt – from icons like the heights of Mount Kosciuszko to the famous
high country huts, to Snowy Hydro feats of ingenuity, beautiful mountain brumbies and
to rivers that flow with legends. The Snowy Mountains Scheme is one of Australia’s
largest engineering and construction operations. The ideas behind the scheme is to divert the
winter snowmelt waters westward into the Murrumbidgee rivers, irrigating large parts of inland Australia
and at the same time generating Hydro-Electricity. There are several large lakes, tunnels, and
Hydro power stations that form part of the scheme that you can visit. Tours take visitors
a kilometre into the mountainside and offer a vivid insight into the sheer scope of this
iconic part of the nation’s post-war development. The mountains are beautiful year round and
the region annually attracts some three million visitors seeking nature-based and adventure
holidays. Whether you’re after a rugged back-to-nature experience, want to be cosseted in alpine
splendor or simply feel like going somewhere beautiful, diverse and interesting with the
whole family, the chances are high that you’ll find it in the Snowy Mountains. Attractions,
