Maps show the Snowy Mountains finishing at the NSW border however state borders are not known to nature.

The Snowy’s have the highest peaks in Australia, the highest being Mount Kosciuszko which is 2,223 metres high.

Australia’s top ski resorts, such as Perisher, Thredbo, and Charlotte Pass all lie within Kosciuszko National Park, they are easily accessible and have world-class facilities.

The Snowy Mountains are a popular destination for nature lovers and sports enthusiasts all year-round. Activities in winter include downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, and snowboarding. In summer people enjoy bushwalking, bird watching, hiking, climbing, water skiing, rafting, kayaking, mountain biking, and fishing.

Fly fishers seek trout in the pure rivers, lakes, and streams. Lake Jindabyne is a favourite and is one of Australia’s top fishing destinations.
