Ive called my review Crystal Clear because that is what you will get when you come to the Snowies in NSW. The nights are crystal clear. Viewing stars as you wonder out to a resturant, pub or cafe at night is a brilliant pastime, the...More

Not much snow when we went but the prizes of food and drinks are gold. Need to put more attractions just in case there is not much snow. I wonder why Aussies go overseas rather than spending money here in our own backyard because we...More

It's my first time to see real snow in my life and I Had a great time at snowy mountain. Best time to visit is in the month of June not so crowded and a little bit cheaper than usual price.

The scenery is beuatiful and clean. There is a lot of road kill which is a bit upsetting to animal lovers such as myself, so drive carefully. Apart from this perfect for snow in winter.

My first skiing trip. Overall experience was very good. Staffs are helpful. I went in late June, the snow was not heavy enough. However, if you wait after July, it will be local school holiday. Guess there will be a lot of ppl there.

Just a beautiful area. The national park is massive and there are so many activities that can be done! Gorgeous wild animals to photograph and of course the snow! A must visit.
