Driving

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.

Snow Chains

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.
