“We swam in the thermal pool while looking across the snow-filled valley. Even the trees were covered in icicles. Exhilarating.”
For a weekend away from it all in picturesque Yarrangobilly Valley, head for Yarrangobilly Caves House in the northern edge of Kosciuszko National Park. Escape the crowds and revel in the wonder of a bygone era in your own lovingly restored, self-contained wing, or individual room, of the heritage building.
Perfect for conferences, family gatherings and romantic getaways, Yarrangobilly Caves House is a lovely spot for enjoying the splendour of all four seasons. Yarrangobilly Caves offers bushwalking, self-guided and guided cave tours, Discovery tours, and fishing in the clear mountain streams. It’s only a short drive to the Selwyn snowfields to enjoy a day of skiing the slopes.
After a hard day of adventuring, dive into the naturally heated thermal swimming pool. Round it off with a relaxing drink on the verandah, gazing across at scenic views of the limestone bluffs.
Completely renovated in 2012, the 1917 section of Yarrangobilly Caves House has won the following awards:
- National Trust – 2013 Heritage Award for Conservation – Built Heritage Government and Corporate
- Australian Institute of Architects - 2014 Heritage Conservation Architecture Award – Architectural Projects
