Located between Cooma and Tumut, the Selwyn area is the main gateway to central and northern Kosciuszko National Park.
Selwyn Snow Resort is a winter favourite for families, first timers and pros. Only 2.5hrs from Canberra, it offers some of the best value day skiing and snow play in NSW.
Nearby Kiandra is where skiing got its start in Australia. Today, this historic town is an easy stop along the Snowy Mountains Highway. Stretch your legs on the short Kiandra heritage track while you're here. It's a great way to learn about life in Kiandra’s heyday during Australia’s highest, coldest and shortest gold rush.
There are plenty of activities year-round so why not stay at historic Wolgal Hut, or find a quiet campsite by Three Mile Dam. Then set out on foot amongst the heath and snow gums along Goldseekers track. In winter, swap hiking boots for cross-country skis or snowshoes.
The high plains east of the highway boast a network of summer mountain bike and horse riding trails. You can also visit historic Four Mile Hut near Selwyn. There’s fine trout fishing for anglers in the streams and reservoirs, or at Eucumbene Dam, near Adaminaby.
