Now winter’s nearly here, it’s time to get in early and start booking your winter wonderland holiday!
If you’re into skiing and you’ve visited a few slopes, but haven’t been local, then the time is right to support the Aussie ski fields and parallel your way to one of our fantastic ski fields.
The Snowy Mountains, known locally as “The Snowies”, are Australia’s highest mountain range and are located in southern New South Wales. The Snowy Mountains contain Australian mainland’s highest mountain, Mount Kosciuszko. Snow normally falls the most during June, July and Early August.
A lot of people choose to stay in Cooma, a town in the south of New South Wales. Cooma is located 115 km south of Canberra, via the Monaro Highway and is the main town of the Monaro region.
Cooma has developed a growing tourism industry, as it became the main rest stop for many travellers heading to the NSW snowfields during the winter months. As a result, the town nicknamed itself the ‘Gateway to the Snowy Mountains’.
Cooma is serviced by Cooma – Snowy Mountains Airport, which is 15 kilometres from the CBD. Cooma has a bus service connecting various areas of town three times a day run by Cooma Coaches. Cooma is serviced by CountryLink buses which make daily journeys to both Canberra and the Bega Valley.
