Take a memorable trip through a magical landscape of endless mountains covered in snow and pristine lakes of melted ice. This is an invaluable opportunity to visit the great Snowy Mountains of New South Wales and gather an understanding of their importance through history and the contemporary world. The Snowy Mountains tour directed by Canberra day tours, not only allows you to visit these vast mountains during the mystical season of Winter, you may opt to tour these mountains in Summer, gaining a perspective on what these mountains look like beneath the snow and ice. Both the winter and summer tours are with a mini bus and travel through historic Cooma, the headquarters of the Snowy Mountains scheme. The tour also explores the Snowy River, Lake Jindabyne (7 times the size of Sydney Harbour) and Thredbo village. There are also opportunities to ski down these great slopes. After skiing, satisfy your appetite by taking the chairlift to Eagle’s nest, Australia’s highest restaurant perched 1937 metres above the ground and offering stunning views of the Perisher Valley and the extraordinary Mt Kosciuszko.
