More Info

Stretching from southern New South Wales through the northernmost part of Victoria, the Australian Alps and Perisher Range are home to Australia’s only ski touring opportunities.

The vast majority of the country’s backcountry skiing is done in the famous Kosciuszko National Park, which is mostly located in New South Wales, but also a little bit in Victoria. Aside from climbing the mountain for the same name, backcountry skiers often head to the park to Twin Creek, Perisher Blue or Thredbo.

Thredbo is also home to the Bogong Creek Area, which boasts incredible natural beauty as well as Mt Bogong. The highest peak in Victoria is a great spot for beginner backcountry skiers to get some great experience.

Falls Creek is also in Victoria. While this part of the Australian Alps has fewer steep descents, it makes up for that with plenty of incredible scenery. Perfect for those looking for a more relaxed backcountry adventure.




Good to Know


What’s the weather like?

During the winter months, average temperatures in the Australian Alps hover around freezing. These decrease as you gain in elevation. Winter is also the wettest time of year, meaning plenty of fresh powder throughout the season.

How to get there:

Most backcountry skiing trips to Australia will begin with a flight into Canberra Airport (CBR). From here, Australia’s ski spots are an easy and scenic 2 to 2.5 hour drive south.
