Snowy Mountains, NSW, Australia

Mount Kosciuszko in the Snowy Mountains is Australia’s highest mountain and the Snowy River is Australia’s highest river. They form parts of the Australian Alps and the Great Dividing Range. The Snowy Mountains are known for the historic Snowy Mountains Hydroelectric Scheme, and Banjo Patterson’s “The Man from Snowy River.”

During the winter months, major winter ski resorts operate within the the Kosciuszko National Park – the snow-covered area is more than Switzerland and Austria combined.

The Man from Snowy River Bush Festival is held annually in Corryong, Victoria in the foothills of the Snowy Mountains halfway between Melbourne and Sydney.
