A diverse range of places to explore and experience
When you visit the Snowy Valleys you’ll find a diverse range of places to explore and experiences on offer. Explore the Tumbarumba wine region, and taste award-winning boutique wines at our cellar doors. Visit Batlow to taste the famous apples straight from the orchards at one of our road-side stalls. Investigate the region’s gold mining history at Adelong Falls Gold Mill Ruins, or the once-thriving Kiandra. Marvel at the engineering wonders of the Snowy Mountains Scheme at Talbingo and Khancoban. Try your hand at fly-fishing in the Tumut River, so close to town, or the more remote Swampy Plains River near Khancoban. Swim, fish, or laze on the banks of the Murray River at Jingellic’s free camp ground, right next to the local pub. In winter, ski or snowboard at Mt Selwyn, whose network of trails will keep the entire family entertained. Selwyn caters for beginners through to seasoned skiers and boarders. It’s one of the few snow resorts in NSW where tobogganing is allowed, and also offers snow tubing and snow biking.
Yarrangobilly Caves at the northern end of Kosciuszko National Park is not to be missed. Take a guided tour of the stunning caves, or relax in the thermal pool – even in the depths of winter it’s a constant 27°C.
No matter the time of year, the towns and villages of the Snowy Valleys have plenty to keep you entertained.
