The Snowy Mountains and Kosciuszko National Park is nestled in South Eastern NSW. The Trail Village, Start Lines, and much of the course are all within 30 mins drive from the town of Jindabyne. There’s plenty of accommodation options here, as well as supermarkets, restaurants and bars, and other resources. The hub of activity will be based around the alpine village of Thredbo. We highly recommend finding accommodation here if you want to be close to the action. Neighbouring ski villages and towns like Crackenback are also close by and offer accommodation options.
The easiest access from international ports to the Snowy Mountains is to fly in to Canberra Airport.
Easiest access from international or interstate cities is through Canberra Airport, which can be flown into from all major Australian Airports. You can also fly direct to Cooma with Regional Express (REX) airlines, with year-round return flights from Sydney into Snowy Mountains Airport.
DO YOU NEED A VISA?
Before booking international flights be sure to check if you need a visa to travel to Australia.
Jindabyne is a two-hour drive from Canberra, a five-hour drive from Sydney and a seven-hour drive from Melbourne. If you’re flying into Canberra, you can pick up a rental car that will be useful during your race week.
We recommend having a car during race week as a way to get around the Snowy Mountains, from Jindabyne to Bullocks Flat and Thredbo, as well as points on course.
There will be a shuttle running throughout the day from Jindabyne to Bullocks Flat and to Friday Flat in Thredbo – see the transport page for more info.
