Thredbo is a mountain village located in the Kosciuszko National Park in New South Wales. The village is an all year attraction located just below the snowline (1370 m above sea level). The town provides accomodation and services for the skiing industry here, and was the location for the 1989 Winter World Cup.
Thredbo has a ski lift that takes you from the lower valley floor up to some great alpine and sub-alpine scenery. Views of the surrounding ranges and valleys within the Snowy Mountains are spectacular. A walk to the summit of Mount Kosciuszko is 12 kms return and takes about 4-6 hours to complete. The walk is popular in the summer months, with alpine flora visible, but in winter, the areas is more suitable for skiing.
