Skiing and Snowboarding are what makes this region “tick”. The ski resorts of Thredbo and Perisher offer some of the best ski runs in Australia. If you dont ski or board, you can still have winter fun with snowplay or snow shoeing.
Snowy Mountains is fast becoming an exciting year round holiday destination with trout fishing, mountain bike riding, horse riding, bushwalking & waterskiing all popular activities once the snow has melted.
Endless bushwalking and mountain bike trails can be found in this area including a walking track to the summit of Mt Kosciuszko and the down hill mountain bike runs of Thredbo. Alpine Habitats is only a few minutes drive to the edge of the Kosciuszko National Park.
The crystal clear water flowing down the rivers and streams of the region are regarded as having some of the most challenging trout fishing in the country as do Lakes Jindabyne & Eucumbene.
Lake Jindabyne is a buzz in summer. Waterskiing and wakeboarding, sailing and canoeing are just some of the water sports available on the lake.
The Wild Brumby Schnapps Distillery is just across the road and can be a great place to enjoy some free schnapps tasting, share a beer or wine or have some lunch. Its one of those places everybody loves!!!
The Crackenback Cottage Restaurant is on the other side of the Alpine Way. There is a maze which is fun for both adults and children as well as a restaurant set in beautiful surroundings.
Alpine Habitats is centrally located; 20 min drive to Thredbo, 5 min to the Ski Tube (underground rail access to Perisher) and 10 min drive to Lake Jindabyne.
