The Snowies

The Snowy Mountains are the highest mountains in Australia whose summit, Mount Kosciuszko, is 2,228 metres above sea level. They are located south of Canberra, on the border between the states of New South Wales and Victoria. They are considered to be the Australian Alps and are home to four ski resorts. During our stay, we had the pleasure of driving through the first snowstorm of the year. This alpine climate is relatively rare in Australia! That said, do not expect forests of spruce and larch, but rather mountains of eucalyptus trees. The region is home to many species of rare or endangered plants and animals. Driving from Canberra, the view of Lake Jindabyne is exceptional (photo). For your information, the Snowy Mountains Wikipedia page is very well referenced and we invite you to visit it to learn more about The Snowies.
