Conveniently located on Kosciuszko Road, this small but helpful office with visitor facilities makes an ideal stop on your way through Perisher to Charlotte Pass and Mount Kosciuszko.  

Pick up maps or books, and ask our knowledgeable staff about activities in the Perisher Range, including winter enquiries for the ski resort villages of Perisher, Blue Cow, Smiggin Holes and Guthega. They also provide important information on park conditions, closures, access and safety. A small range of hiking essentials are also available.

You can also complete a trip intention form and hire a personal locator beacon (PLB) before setting out on your alpine hike, mountain bike ride, or cross country skiing adventure in the Main Range or Kosciuszko back country.
