Today is all about getting your blood pumping. Kick starting your weekend of wellness the right way!

Morning | Hike To The Top Of Australia

Wake up feeling refreshed in the Thredbo Alpine Hotel and head to Cascades Restaurant for a delicious buffet breakfast to fuel up for the day.

Once you’re ready to go, head to Valley Terminal and hop on the Kosciuszko Chairlift for a scenic ride to the gateway of Australia’s highest mountains. Our tip? Chairlift rides provide a peaceful opportunity to do some meditation or take some deep breaths before you embark on your adventure.

The Mt Kosciuszko Hike is 13km and takes roughly 4-6 hours return with an abundance of natural wonders to take in along the way. Exposure to the rich sensory tapestry of nature like rustling leaves, chirping birds, and the fragrance of wildflowers is proven to alleviate stress and induce relaxation, so make sure to take it slow and bask in all of the sounds, scents and sights that await you.

Evening | Sunset Views From The Deck

For dinner, head to The Local Pub to relax on the deck and watch the sunset over the mountains. After a big day on the mountain, their decent portions of fresh and healthy caesar salads or burrito bowls are bound to hit the spot.

Local’s Tip: Have some spare time in the afternoon? Thredbo’s Leisure Centre has an Olympic-sized pool for laps, squash court, sports hall and a gymnasium.

Day 2 | Taking It Slow

We’re slowing things down on day two! It’s all about calming the nervous system, enjoying the moment & being present with your surrounds.

Morning | Yoga Session

After a big day of movement on day one, yoga is the ultimate way to stretch out and clear the mind before another day of adventures. After, head to Cascades Restaurant to treat yourself with a delicious brekkie roll, before popping by the Bakery to stock up on picnic supplies.

Mid-Morning | Waterfalls, Wildflowers & The Perfect Picnic Spot

Spend the morning seeking out the many waterfalls and quaint rockpools across the mountain and throughout the village. Cold water immersion is the ultimate way to invigorate your mind and body with benefits that include enhanced blood circulation, reduced muscle inflammation, a boosted metabolism and even improvements to your mood. Brave the elements and try a dip in the Thredbo river or walk up Merritts Nature Track to see if you can find the famous rockpool.

Near the top of Merritts Nature Track, you’ll find what may just be Australia’s best picnic spot. A picnic table perched on a rock with views throughout the valley and beyond, there’s truly no better place to tuck into a salad roll. As you stroll up the track, you’ll be wowed by rare and iconic flora and fauna including Snow Gums, Alpine Ash, native flowering plants,
wombat burrows and more.

Evening | Treat Yourself To Local Produce

Treating yourself is an important component of self care! Tonight, head to Cascades Restaurant to enjoy a chef-curated seasonal menu highlighting the region’s local produce. Plus, the views of the mountain are the perfect accompaniment.

Day 3 | Find The Perfect Balance

Morning | Gym, Swim Or Both! 

Start your third day on the right foot! Get active at Thredbo’s tennis courts, golf course, or gym and pool at Thredbo Leisure Centre.

Mid-Morning | Choose Your Own Adventure With Thredbo’s Guided Hikes 

Now that you’ve conquered the Mt Kosciuszko Summit, its time to explore further afield. By booking a Guided Hike or a Private Hike with our expert local guides, you can safely access more adventurous terrain and incredible landscapes off the beaten track.

If you’re keen to finish off the weekend with a bang, our most challenging Mt Townsend Hike is a 21km journey that will reward you with stunning views and a strong sense of accomplishment.

For a more relaxed adventure that still offers incredible views, our famous 10km Dead Horse Gap Hike is the perfect choice. Mostly downhill, you’ll descend just over 300 vertical metres from the top of the Kosciuszko Chairlift to Dead Horse Gap, before circling back along the Thredbo River with an array of beautiful waterfalls, wildflowers and twisted snow gums.

For an awe-inspiring new experience, check out our unique range of nighttime hikes. Offering a range of New Moon, Full Moon and Sunset Hikes, these journeys are sure to leave you with the incredible feeling you get after trying something new.

Afternoon | A lazy picnic by the Thredbo River

After an active day, its time to slow down and find the balance. With daylight lingering late into the evening, pack a picnic and head out to the Thredbo River to dine al fresco. Laze along its banks, soak up the late afternoon sun and take a moment to wind down after a big weekend of adventure.
