  • Snowy mountain accommodation to view only, not for skiing

    by TuanVietTran Online Now May 19, 2014 at 6:00 AM

    Hi there, I plan to visit Snowy Mountains in the Queen's Birthday long weekend. I live in Sydney, I will arrive on Sunday (8/6/2014) and check out Tuesday (10/6/2014). My wife and me just looking for accommodations with reasonable price (for 2 nights), where we can view the snowy and some beautiful places around there. We won't skiing or practice at all, because my wife does not want to hurt herself. So we just wanna stay in accommodation with big window or balcony to view the snow. Could you give me some advice for that, please? About accommodation and snowy mountains information, please. Thank you very much!!

    I would like to find out if it does snow in any of the towns in the snowy mountains besides thredbo and perisher blue.
    I am wondering if towns like Cooma, Adaminaby, Jindabyne and Berridale get snow as I am trying to get an accomodation that has snow in early to mid August.

    I've read bout winter tyres in Australia so do i still to carry snow chains with me?

    Thank you.

  • Planing a trip from SYD to BNE in mid August

    by VPB Online Now Jul 9, 2008 at 9:41 AM

    We'll planning a 12 day trip with our 4.5yr old son startin fr SYD to see snow and ending in BNE for some milder weather in Queensland. Do we have to get up to the ski fields in the snowy mountains to see and play with snow?(we don't ski) Will there be snow in towns like jindabyne or cooma during mid Aug? What's the temp range during that time? Besides driving,are there trains or coaches to these areas from SYD and from SYD to BNE as we plan to only pick up a car in BNE. And any suggestion on where we sh head to from BNE after picking up our car. Any suggestion on a modern,new or newly renovated self-contained studio or 1 bedrm apt in nice area that we can relax in for 2-3 days? what are the places we can go for some fun for young kids? Are there any nice farmstays in Queensland? Thanks!

    I'm looking for self contained accommodation in Perisher or Thredbo for a group of 16. I was hoping to book an entire self-contained lodge or holiday house. Does anyone have any suggestions?
