Getting Here & Parking

Roughly 5.5 hours’ drive from either Sydney or Melbourne and 2.5 hours drive from Canberra, Thredbo offers both day and overnight car parking facilities.
New This Winter | Snowy Mountains Bus Service will run from Jindabyne to Thredbo, running every 30 minutes during peak periods.
MyThredbo Card Kiosks
On arrival your first step is to pick up your MyThredbo card, your personal key to Thredbo. The 24-7 MyThredbo Card Kiosks are located near the base of the chairlifts at Friday Flat and Valley Terminal.
Offering ease and convenience, your MyThredbo Card is linked to your Thredbo profile so whenever you buy a lift pass or lesson it will be loaded onto this card.
Renting your equipment?
For guests opting for the on-snow convenience of renting ski or snowboard equipment from Thredbo Rental, we recommend arriving with enough time to collect your rental gear.
Even better, collect your rental equipment the day before you hit the slopes. Rental equipment can be collected after 3pm the day prior.
