Escape the noise this summer…

Get your head in the clouds in Thredbo

Beep, beep, next station, red light, traffic jam, crowds, rush hour. STOP….Breathe….

This summer, Thredbo is encouraging everyone to flee the busyness of everyday, the distractions of the daily grind and head into the mountains to refresh, recharge and reconnect with a mountain escape that will have you at nature’s heart, high in sky in the breathtaking Kosciuszko National Park in the NSW Snowy Mountains.

The year round chairlift whisks you to the closest access point to Mt Kosciuszko, from the top of the Thredbo you are only 6.5km’s from the top of Australia. Once at the top, take your time to take in the incredible views that sweep across the Great Dividing Range, encompassing the Victorian High Country, the majestic Main Range to the mighty Monaro.  They are undoubtedly some of the best views in Australia.
