Wake up in the Thredbo Alpine Hotel and start your day with a delicious buffet breakfast at Cascades Restaurant. Today is all about trying out Thredbo’s Mountain Bike Park — Australia’s only lift-accessed gravity mountain bike trails.
First time mountain bike riding? We got you! Your first step is to head to Thredbo Retail and Rental Store who will get you kitted up with everything you need from a great quality bike to protective gear. Next up, make sure you’ve booked in for an Intro to MTB Clinic with one of our expert instructors who will help you nail the basics and get confident on the bike. Then you’ll be ready to jump on the chairlift or the gondola to explore over 40km of downhill and gravity trails. Hot tip?

We’re doing it all this weekend so buckle in for Day 3!

Hot tip? Make sure to grab an Adventure Pass Upgrade with your lift pass to unlock access to all of these activities from only $10 extra per day.
For lunch, pack a picnic and head up the Kosciuszko Chairlift for a walk down the picturesque Merritts Nature Track. At the start, see if you can find the stunning rockpools off to the left of the track. Along your way down, you’ll find Australia’s most iconic picnic table with views as far as the eye can see. The perfect place for lunch. As you arrive back to the village, take a stroll along the Thredbo River and through the Golf Course loop where you’ll spot blooming wildflowers and maybe even spot some native animals.
On your final night in Thredbo, head to Cascades Restaurant to reward yourself with a gourmet dinner after an adventurous weekend.
