Australian ski locations

Whether you’re about to embark on your first-ever ski experience or are a seasoned boarder, look no further – Australia has an alpine playground suited to you. The alpine regions of Australia are mainly found in the states of New South Wales and Victoria. There’s a beauty to skiing the snow gums of Australia knowing you won’t find these eucalyptus trees on any other ski field in the world.

Six hours drive south from Sydney is the Kosciusko National Park, where you’ll find Thredbo, Perisher, and Charlotte Pass. Thredbo resort is serviced by a swanky village with bars and restaurants, and there are eleven ski-in, ski-out restaurants on the mountain. Thredbo covers 480 hectares and offers skiing areas for everyone from the first-timer to the very advanced.

The largest ski resort to be found in both Australia and New Zealand is the Perisher Blue, which offers almost 1500 hectares of skiable terrain. This resort is almost entirely ski-in, ski-out and is also known for its super pipe and terrain parks. Nearby sits Charlotte Pass, the country’s highest ski resort, which is a small ski area accessible by snow cat from Perisher Blue.

Further south in Victoria sits the resorts of Mt. Hotham and Falls Creek. Hotham village sits on the top of the mountain, which means your first ski of the day is down to the lift. The terrain here is steeper than Falls Creek, but still offers something for all levels, with over 300 hectares of terrain. Falls Creek is the prettiest alpine village in the country, and is completely ski-in, ski-out.
