Rest and recreation in the Snowy Valleys

Paddock to Plate (or glass)

The subtle notes of a cold climate wine, grapes grown with utmost care. The cellar doors staffed by vignerons – the opportunity to meet the growers of fruit destined for some of Australia’s best wines. The ciders crafted with love, and breweries built by the dream of best friends. The unmatched beauty of a farm-to-table dinner under the stars.

The farmgate stores nestled on the edge of the orchard, just off the road, open when the fruit is ripe. Stores and markets where the season dictates the availability of goods, ensuring that only the freshest produce is available. These are experiences that can’t be mass-produced. They can only be enjoyed in small batches, on nature’s schedule, but that’s what makes them great.

Fishing

The Snowy Valleys is one of the most picturesque and varied inland fishing areas in NSW.  Fishing in the streams and lakes of the mountains is a rewarding challenge for skilled fishermen, and a lot of fun for the less experienced. Fly-fishers from near and far visit to try the crystal clear streams, the quality of the fishing matched by the spectacular scenery.
