Snowy Mountains region

The Australian Snowy Mountains region is one of the most inspirational, breathtaking yet challenging places to road ride in the country. The quality of the road surfaces combined with the minimal summer time traffic adds to the experience of epic climbs and the peace of the Kosciuszko National Park.

The Australian Alps experience is original. It’s authentic. And its strengths have appeal to the international Experience Seeker. It offers a distinctive, inspiring experience of powerful nature seen in sweeping mountain ranges, and cultural heritage and lifestyle that reveal the legendary Australian spirit, played out on a vast stage yet delivered through intimate, personal encounters and moments. It covers about five million hectares and cuts across three State boundaries and many land tenures and stakeholder interests. It has been identified as one of the nation’s iconic National Landscapes that offer exceptional nature experiences, opening the door to the development and marketing of the Australian Alps as an integrated destination.
