Thredbo Village for your Hotel, Apartment, Ski Lodge Accommodation
Thredbo, the first choice for your alpine accommodation, along with the vibrant nightlife, restaurants and a host of alpine activities, both on, and off the snow.
Thredbo is a scenic alpine community nestled into the foothills of Australia’s finest mountains, in the exquisite Kosciuszko Nationwide Park.
Located 33 km from Jindabyne, Thredbo is a complete year-round destination resort with multi-faceted, year-round activities for people of all ages. Using its European-style lodges and accommodation, Thredbo has a genuine Northern Hemisphere alpine appeal. A chairlift, open year-round, takes visitors nearly 600 vertical metres up to the high plateau, from where it is a straightforward, relatively easy, six km. stroll to the summit of Mount Kosciuszko.
With the crisp waters of the Thredbo River meandering through its centre, the mountain on one side of the valley and the village is on the other side, you don’t need to go far to experience the allure and atmosphere of alpine Australia.
The location was used regularly in summer by High-Country cattlemen and graziers in the mid-19th century. Precious metal was realized in the 1860s and the ski scene commenced in the late fifties once a chairlift and lodges had been built. Commencing in the fifties, the development of the Snowy Mountains Hydro Electric Scheme saw a great increase in activity in the mountains. Many roads were constructed during this time, and particularly the Alpine Way, which links Thredbo Village with the town of Khancoban on the western side of the mountains. The construction of the Alpine Way has greatly benefited tourism activity for Thredbo Village.
Thredbo is, in fact, a resort for all seasons, and that is the splendor of it; all year round has it’s own distinct features. Throughout the wintertime, the mountain is being swarmed with excited skiers, snowboarders, sightseers and other on-snow activities.
As the snow melts, it is time to wear your hiking boots and head out into the clean verdant alpine air. In the warmer months, as soon as snowy slopes, which had been the focus of skiers and snowboarders are green, throngs of hikers and mountain bikers converge on the mountains. The landscape blooms and this exciting alpine village hosts activities and recreation for all ages and interests.
Thredbo has a stellar backyard that boasts Australia’s highest peak, Mt Kosciuszko. After that, there’s a vast golf course resort which includes a 9 hole course for golfing, racket sports, alpine bobsled run, swimming pool with giant water slides, fully outfitted recreation centre, mountain biking, mountain trekking, fly fishing and the ever-present chairlift to satisfy vacation time.
As soon as you discover Thredbo, and its unique location in the Snowy Mountains, you will realize the lure of the mountain lifestyle. Whether or not you are soaking up the sun in summertime or schussing the snow in winter weather, Thredbo is the alpine destination for all.
