For a natural high, you can't top the Snowy Mountains. During winter the region is an alpine wonderland - offering the best skiing in Australia. In summer, chill out and explore the pristine mountain scenery. Australia's High Country is a great all-year-round holiday destination. Serious adrenaline junkies will thrive on challenging treks, cross country skiing or heart-stopping downhill runs. The more sedate will enjoy exploring the wildflower-strewn high plains in summer.

Not everything comes to a stop when the snow melts - you can enjoy the village atmosphere, night spots and log fires at any time. In summer, Kosciuszko National Park is perfect for bush walking, mountain biking, trout fishing and horse riding. Take one of the special mountain bike trails or walk on 'the roof of Australia'. Excitement and adventure can be had in Australia's High Country all year round.
