    Kosciuzko Brewery

    by Josilver Written Jan 10, 2015

    We have a friend who aims to drink, rate and write a book abot as many beers as possible so wen we sped the Kosciuzko Brewery we had to go and see if we could add to her list. As we were driving and it was rather early in the day we didnt drink, but purchased a couple of bottles to take back home.

    For the record the Koscuizko Pale Ale scores 7.5 out of 10 which on her scale is a very good score.

    Climbing the summit - gear required

    by Josilver Written Jan 10, 2015

    If you are doing a day walk from the top of the chair lift you really dont need much specialist gear. Wind and weahter proof jacket and a beanie are really the only essentials. And as allways take adequate water and food for the day. Shoes - unless it is really wet sneakers or walking shoes are fine. Walking sticks are not really needed and may be a hindrance as a lot of the walk is on metal grate walkways.

    My other half may have been a little oover dressed walking sticks not needed

    Climbing he summit

    by Josilver Written Jan 10, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The main reason to go to thredbo in summer is to climb Mt Kosciuzko. the moutnain is 2228m tall and the highest in Australia. It is however an easy 13km walk from the top of the chair lift at Threbo. The walk takes about 2hrs and has great views and scenery along the way. IT consist of mostly metal wak ways and gravel road. Unless you have serious knee issues walking sticks are unnecessary, unless it gets really wet normal sneakers or walking shoes are fine. Make sureyou take rain and wind proof gear and a beanie as the weather can change very quickly.

    Mountain biking

    by Josilver Written Jan 10, 2015

    One of the most popular summer activites is muntain biking. Trails that would normally be covered in snow are open to crazy mountain bikers. I believe in order to go down the mountain you have to do some sort of safety course first.

    Mandatory 2hr Inductions are $20. One day lift pass for you and your bikes is $71 (ouch!!!)

    Thredbo chair lift

    by Josilver Written Jan 10, 2015

    The easiest way to get up the mountain is using the chair lift - this is a good way to start the walk tot he summit. there is a small but pricey cafe at the top and toilet facilites. It offers a great veiw of the village and surrounds.

    It is $34 for an adult day pass or $18 one way.

    The Thredbo experience

    by iandsmith Updated Jan 27, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It all started so well. There I was, wallet in hand, ready to buy an annual pass and, what did I hear? “If you have a pension card it’s free to get into the Snowy Mountains NP.” A wave of euphoria came over me. I was thinking skiing on the cheap, how good would that be, but, hey, it was summer and I was here to do other things.
    We parked in the Thredbo car park because I knew it was free too. Awesome. Even Rosemarie was a little keen and it was so good to get away from the coastal heat and humidity. We did the Kosciuszko walk the next day and then rested before hitting the Thredbo River Walk the following morning. Since Rosemarie didn’t want to take the trail across Ramshead because it might be just a bush track we opted to walk straight up the River trail.
    It was getting just a little warm so Rosemarie opted out and went around the outside of the golf course and strolled around the village while I pushed on.

    Ski season

    by iandsmith Updated Jan 12, 2011

    Of course, Thredbo has made its name as a ski resort and many is the time I have been down its slopes....not always in an upright position I should add.
    However, when the weather is right it is generally conceded that Thredbo is the pick of the mountains resorts, particularly when it is top to bottom which never happens the whole season so it pays to pick your time.
    Day lift tickets are around the $100 mark but concessions and multi-day tickets for cheaper rates are available.
    There is heaps of accommodation here but it comes at a price.
    The only downside it when it's windy. Up the top of Crackenback, the main lift, it's awful when the wind gets up. Lifts up the top are sometimes closed it's so bad.
    Other than that I think it's the best overall resort.

    Fishing

    by iandsmith Written Jan 11, 2011

    Actually, I should have used the term "fly fishing" but, do I really care?
    At Thredbo and I also believe Jindabyne you can get lessons on how to fly fish. Because most streams in Australia are stocked with fish you can usually get a bite somewhere.
    However, fly fishermen are a different breed and having a love of the environment comes along as part of the package, along with patience.
    There were also fishermen throwing a line in where picture 2 was taken, just below the first carpark at Thredbo.

    Thredbo Creek walk

    by iandsmith Written Jan 11, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The flora was abundant but the legacy of the 2003 bushfires was hard to ignore. Dead limbs still reached for the sky, slowly being overtaken by new growth but it had some way to go.
    After crossing a couple of well made bridges I had to resort to a three step creek crossing near Dead Horse Gap because the walkway wasn't there, having been washed away.
    I finished opposite the carpark and tried thumbing a lift back, striking it lucky at the fifth attempt in a nice Audi. Wouldn’t do to come back in a Ford or a Holden!

    Threbo River walk

    by iandsmith Written Jan 11, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It was a lovely walk. Often the stream was in view but a lot of the time the track meandered above it and you missed some.
    Still, the weather was the main thing to keep one’s eye on. Clouds were banking up on the horizon and it actually spat rain about three times but never dumped thank goodness.
    Towards the top of the 4 km track it crosses the river a few times, on well made bridges except for the last one right at Dead Horse Gap that has been washed away and never replaced.
    Out on the hill looking towards Ramshead the scars of the 2003 bushfires could readily be seen (pic 4).

    Toboganning -v- Skiing

    by lindyz Written Dec 28, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For a first introduction to the slopes of white powder, I would always recommend toboganning. Mainly because it is cheaper than skiing, but also slightly less dangerous!

    The tobogans we always hired were just really a plastic boat shaped thing with a rope on the front, rather simple but effective design and very cheap to hire.

    Mountain Biking

    While in Thredbo in the warmer months you should hire a mountain bike and go for a ride... It's heaps of fun and you will see a lot of the village and outlying areas... It's hard to pedal up some steep roads but it is worth the effort... :)

    Visit the resort township

    by Kate-Me Written Apr 7, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    While you're in Thredbo, it's worth stopping in the village for a bit of a look around (shops were expensive, even the supermarket, so we just had a coffee in one of the funky/trendy cafes, and continued on our walk of the town and hilly surroundings.
    There's also a visitor information centre where you can get maps of the walking trails, book tours and more.

    Snow...

    by CandS Written Feb 18, 2005

    I was really surprised to find snow at Mt Kosciuszko!!! All of the mountains around us had patches of snow still from winter... Plus it had snowed only a couple of days before we got there - in the middle of summer!!!!
