Our beautiful alpine village of Thredbo is located in the Kosciuszko National Park, midway between Sydney and Melbourne. There are a number of ways of getting here below is some information that will help you.

  • Driving from Sydney

    Follow the Hume Highway from Sydney then just south of Goulburn take the Federal Highway and travel south to Canberra. This section of the trip is on a mainly divided road. At Canberra follow the signs to the Monaro Highway to Cooma. The road then joins the Kosciuszko Rd that you follow through the town of Berridale and onto Jindabyne. Just past Jindabyne Town Centre take a left onto the Alpine Way to Thredbo. You will go through the National Park Entrance Station, and then it is only 13km to Thredbo.

    Driving from Melbourne

    Follow the Hume Highway from Melbourne to Wodonga. Take the Murray Valley Highway “To Wodonga / Tallagatta” exit and follow the signs “To Tallangatta” Then after passing Wodonga follow the signs to Tallangatta again on the Murray Valley Highway. You pass through the village of Koetong onto Corryong. Drive through Corryong and take the “Khancoban” turn off on your right. Once in Khancoban you are only 76kms from Thredbo. From here the drive is truly spectacular as you take in awesome views of the Main Range and discover the beauty of the Kosciuszko National Park. The roads are clear for most of the year but when a big snow fall hits, chains may be required for some 2-wheel vehicles.
