Embrace the Allure of Autumn in the NSW Snowy Mountains: Your Ultimate Guide to a Picturesque Getaway

As the vibrant hues of summer fade away, the Snowy Mountains transform into a mesmerising canvas of gold, red, and orange during the enchanting season of Autumn. Nestled amidst this breathtaking landscape, your escape to the Snowy Mountains promises not only a tranquil retreat but a plethora of activities that will make your autumn sojourn truly unforgettable.

Scenic Drives and Breathtaking Views:

Hit the road and embark on an adventure through the picturesque Snowy Mountains. The autumn foliage provides a stunning backdrop as you navigate the winding roads, unveiling panoramic views that seem almost too beautiful to be real. 

Head along the iconic The Alpine Way from Jindabyne to Khancoban, through the southern reaches of Kosciuszko National Park following windy mountain roads, past alpine villages and picturesque camping grounds. 

Take the Jindabyne–Dalgety–Berridale Loop and explore the beautiful rolling plains and pastures of the Monaro. Be sure to stop in to Shut The Gate Cellar Door and Providor in Berridale for some supplies and historic Buckley’s Crossing in Dalgety for an awesome pub feed.

Wind your way from Jindabyne up to Charlotte Pass, Australia’s highest ski resort. Whilst it’s completely under snow in winter, it’s a beautiful village to visit via car outside of winter. Wind through the picturesque Perisher Valley all the way to the top to enjoy some of the best views of the Kosciuszko Main Range. Be sure to jump out and take a walk on the Snow Gum Boardwalk, then head down into the village for lunch at Stillwell Hotel.

Don’t forget your camera; the Snowy Mountains in autumn are a photographer’s dream!

Hiking Amongst Nature’s Palette:

For those who crave an active escape, the Snowy Mountains offer an array of hiking trails that showcase the region’s natural beauty. Traverse through forests ablaze with autumnal colours, and breathe in the crisp mountain air as you explore trails like the iconic Thredbo Valley Track, the serene Lake Jindabyne Circuit or head to the top of Australia on the Kosciuszko Walk.

Fishing in Tranquil Waters:

Autumn is the perfect time for fishing enthusiasts to cast a line into the clear and tranquil waters of the Snowy Mountains. With the lakes, dams, rivers and streams teeming with trout, fishing becomes an immersive experience amidst the breathtaking autumn scenery. 

Fly fishing, casting lures, trolling lures or bait fishing are all effective, and a fresh catch of Brown, Rainbow and Brook Trout or Atlantic Salmon will do well for dinner! Popular fishing spots around the region include Lake Jindabyne, Lake Eucumbene, Khancoban Pondage, and the Thredbo River.

Indulge in Local Culinary Delights:

After a day of exploration, treat your taste buds to the delectable offerings of the Snowy Mountains. Local eateries and charming cafes showcase the region’s finest produce, from hearty mountain fare to artisanal delights. 

Visit local favourites such as the Wild Brumby Distillery, Jindabyne’s Birchwood and Cocina Taqueria, or the many culinary delights of Thredbo and Crackenback. Savour the flavours of the season while enjoying the warmth of a crackling fireplace.

Stargazing Extravaganza:

As the sun sets and the crisp mountain air sets in, prepare for a celestial spectacle. The Snowy Mountains boast some of the clearest night skies, providing a canvas for stargazing that is unparalleled. Grab a blanket, lay back, and be captivated by the brilliance of the Southern Hemisphere’s stars.
