The skiing scene in Australia is like no other, being able to glide over the snow next to a forest full of gum trees is something you can only find in this beautiful country. New South Wales is one of the top places to visit if you're looking to ski in Australia, with the resorts only about a few hour's drive away from the CBD, it's a convenient way to spend a few days by travelling there with a car or taking a coach bus for a few hours.

The only way to get here is with oversnow transport, so enjoy the scenic ride while you arrive at the resort!
