Thredbo Australia
A Family Friendly Mountain

Thredbo Australia is located in NSW between Albury/Wodonga and Jindabyne. It boasts the longest and highest snow trails in Australia.

With a number of different trails to suit your skill level there is definitely something here for everyone.

A great novelty is the night skiing which is offered on Tuesdays and Saturdays, however this is only in July and August.

Once you've made it to the mountain park your car and relax, during winter you can take advantage of the free shuttle bus which operates between Friday Flats and the Village, covering most accommodation venues.

When heading to the snow you'll often need to hire equipment, there are loads of options with a number of retail outlets on the slopes. It's up to you to decide whether you'll buy or hire, Thredbo has it all and with a wide selection to choose from you'll never feel daggy.

Wombat's World at Thredbo is where you'll find the kid friendly slopes. It's located on Friday Flat. It's as safe as snow gets and is designed to cater for the little ones. It has a slow speed quad chair to ease them into the concept of moving around the slopes.

Kids at the snow

If you're worried about your kids being on the slopes for the first time why not consider enrolling them into Thredbo's Snow Sport's School.

The programs for kids start from the age of 3. They have the ability to incorporate learning with fun. Not only do your kids learn to ski they make some great mates whilst enjoying snowball fights and snow angels too.

Thredbo Australia has an amazing leisure centre too which has loads of activities for your family. Who would have thought you could head to the snow and go swimming!

Yes that's right the Thredbo Leisure Centre has an Olympic size heated swimming pool which even has a water slide.

Another unique feature of this pool is its ‘Mission Inflatable' which is a floating obstacle course. If you're kids aren't tired after skiing they will be after this.

That coupled with a fully equipped gym and fun fitness classes for mum or dad, a sports hall and rock climbing you will never hear I'm bored at Thredbo.

If you love the snow and plan on visiting Thredbo more than once you may want to consider becoming a member of the Thredbo Club. It's a club that asks you to pay a small fee and in return offers you loads of discounts on lift passes, restaurants, bars, accommodation and loads more.

This is a great incentive for those wanting to really make the most of the snow season.
