THREDBO VALLEY GUIDE
Midway between Jindabyne and Thredbo and just outside the entry to the Kosciuszko National park is the beautiful green oasis of the Thredbo Valley. A 15-20 minute drive into Thredbo Village or a 5 minute drive to the Ski Tube, the valley offers a completely differant perspective to Australia's Snowy Mountains plus the alternatives of Thredbo and or Perisher Blue Resort .
There are in this area over ten guest houses, chalets to rent, farms all of varying luxuries plus restaurants and bars. In the summer the Thredbo Valley is a haven for mountain biking, horse riding, fly fishing and general relaxation.
Enjoy lunch, brunch, munch...and dinner in our award winning country restaurant. We offer a good variety of fresh, tasty imaginative food with an emphasis on local produce. We are fully licensed with a bar and boast Australia's largest variety of Schnapps. We serve morning and afternoon teas, our famous scones and blackberry jam is a great interlude while travelling Alpine Way.
"Few fireplaces could compete with the rip-roaring one that welcomes you at this charming old famliy-run restaurant and craft shop on the road between Jindabyne and Thredbo. There's no potentiousness in the atmosphere, the service or the good honest food, and it's an ideal place to stop off with the kids on the way to the mountains, even if only for good coffee and cakes.
At dinner, hot herbed pizza bread keeps out
the cold until your Roma tomato, Carrot and coriander soup or smoked salmon
lasagne with rocket arrives. The menu makes full use of local trout and
goat's cheese and there's always an excellent rack of local Monaro lamb,
served simply with a rosemary and beetroot glaze. Vegetarians will enjoy
oven-roasted vegie and polenta stack drizzled with good olive oil. Leave
room for a crunchy apple crumble."
For the children, one of Australia's largest
Maze's is at the rear of the restaurant, for $2.00 entry they can amuse
themselves for hours.
