Thredbo is located within the Kosciuszko National Park in the NSW Snowy Mountains and is open 365 days a year.
Not quite sure how to get here? Don’t stress…it’s easy. Thredbo is located roughly 6 hours’ drive from either Sydney or Melbourne and can be conveniently accessed via car, bus or plane.
Most of our guests find it easiest to drive here. We’re located roughly 6 hours’ drive from either Sydney or Melbourne, and 2.5 hours’ drive from Canberra.
As we’re located in a national park, all vehicles are required to purchase a vehicle pass to enter Kosciuszko National Park. You can purchase your pass at the park entrance gates on Alpine Way before you enter the park. Find out more on the NPWS website.
If you’re visiting Thredbo for the day you can park your car in one of the many car parks close to the village and mountain.
If you are staying overnight in Thredbo, we have free overnight designated parking areas (P2,P3 & P4) and many chalets and apartments have on-site parking for guests.
Snow chains for vehicles are not legally required to be carried on the Alpine Way between Jindabyne and Thredbo, however the NSW Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) highly recommends 2WD vehicles carry snow chains between 1 June and 11 October.
On extreme weather days that require snow chains, roadside signage and authorised personel be stationed on the road as you approach chain bays.
Chains can be hired at service stations and ski-hire shops in the region. When hiring they will need to know your tyre size and be sure to ask about any fitting tips.
What if I have an AWD or 4WD vehicle?
Not all all-wheel drive vehicles have tyres fitted suitable for driving on snow and ice so the RMS recommends that AWD and 4WD vehicles carry chains as well, especially if drivers have little experience driving on snow or ice.
See Live Traffic NSW for road conditions.
Enjoy less time travelling and more time skiing and snowboarding when you travel by plane to Thredbo.
If you are flying from Sydney you can fly direct to Snowy Mountains Airport in Cooma with REX Regional Express. If you are flying from outside of NSW you will need to fly into Canberra and can do so from every major city in Australia.
