Want to stay in your very own alpine lodge in the Snowy Mountains? Numbananga Lodge offers exclusive accommodation for up to 6 guests in Smiggin Holes—part of Australia’s largest ski resort.

In winter, this self-contained lodge offers semi ski-in ski-out accommodation within minutes of the ski runs and restaurants of ‘Smiggins’. You’re only a 2km drive or shuttle from Perisher Valley where you’re spoiled for choice with skiing, snowboarding, terrain parks and tubing. It’s a great place to try snowshoeing or cross-country skiing, and there’s plenty of off-piste entertainment for snowcialisers. You can also ski to Perisher from Smiggins.

In summer, the lodge makes a perfect base to explore the walks, bike rides and fishing spots between Jindabyne and Charlotte Pass. Get an early start on the Mount Kosciuszko Summit hike or watch the sun set on the Main Range from Mount Stillwell or Snow Gums Boardwalk. The kid-friendly Porcupine walking track is a great option during wildflower season, or bring your mountain bike to ride to Guthega or Schlink Hut.

Take your time exploring Australia’s high country then return to the creature comforts of a hot shower, barbecue and a comfy bed. You’ll be well-rested for a new day of Kosciuszko adventures.
