Destination guide

Thredbo holiday homes to rent

From snow-sure trails and rugged peaks to vibrant parkland and glistening waters, Thredbo is truly an all-weather destination for adventurers and explorers. Whether you’re travelling solo or with the whole family, you’ll find a range of possibilities for indoor and outdoor fun in the Snowy Mountains with Thredbo holiday homes to rent.

Things to do

You'll be riding high in Kosciuszko National Park

Thredbo is nestled high up in Kosciuszko National Park, and Mount Kosciuszko itself is a major attraction. It's Australia's highest point, and if you undertake the 4-hour round trip to bag the summit, you'll be literally on top of the country, if not quite the world. In the other direction, you could head down the mountain for attractions including the Gaden Trout Hatchery in Jindabyne or the Wildbrumby Distillery in Crackenback. And if little legs are getting a bit stiff from ski school, Thredbo vacation rentals offer plenty of family-friendly attractions, including a disc golf course and trampolines.

Activities

Thredbo? They really ought to call it Shredbo

Shredders rejoice, because Thredbo vacation rentals are all about snow sports. With more than 50 runs – including some of the longest in Australia – Thredbo's one of the top skiing and snowboarding destinations on the continent, and with plenty of beginners' slopes and terrain parks, it pretty much caters to everyone. Best of all, when the snow stops, the fun doesn't. Come summer, Thredbo becomes a top destination for hiking, climbing and downhill biking. It's got the highest golf course in the country, and its annual blues festival each January keeps things cool even when the sun's shining.

Outdoor activities

Outdoor fun near Thredbo holiday rentals

Whether winter or summer, Thredbo has adventure and fun for all seasons and weather. The snow-capped peaks and ideal conditions are perfect for skiing, snowboarding, terrain parks, backcountry adventures, mountain tours and winter stargazing. In summer, mountain biking, hiking, outdoor yoga, scenic chairlift rides, disc golf, golf, fly fishing, alpine bobsledding, tennis and abseiling are popular. Day trips to neighbouring locations offer helicopter tours, caving, sport fishing, and wilderness horseback riding, and four-wheeling or off-roading are also available.

Weather

They don't call them the Snowy Mountains for nothing

While the higher mountain sides usually get a good covering of the white stuff through conventional means, the slopes closer to town are at relatively low altitude, so Thredbo's owners have given Mother Nature a little helping hand in the form of one of the most advanced snowmaking systems on the continent. The upshot of all this is that snow in Thredbo is reliable right through the season, and we can all raise an apres-ski drink to that. Come summer, it warms up considerably, though it can still be quite cool, and the occasional dusting of snow has been known.

Natural highlights

Think bigger is better? Thredbo does too

Thredbo likes to make sure it takes the top spot in most matters. Set in the Snowy Mountains, it's got the longest runs and highest ski lifts in Australia, and it's also set in Kosciuszko National Park, home to Mount Kosciuszko – the highest mountain in the country. The Thredbo River follows the Alpine Way road most of the way down the mountain and eventually tumbles into vast, man-made Lake Jindabyne. Among the most distinctive features of the area are the impossibly tough snow gum trees clinging to the slopes, and the occasionally problematic population of wild horses – or 'brumbies'.

How to get around

Getting to Thredbo holiday homes

Many transport options are available in and around Thredbo to get you to and from your holiday accommodation. A shuttle bus operates in the winter and has pickup points at nearby destinations, and night services are available in summer months. In snowy or icy conditions, the village may require chains on vehicles travelling through the area, which makes public transport the best option. Holiday homes to rent are available near the resort area, restaurants and many exciting destinations, however, so it’s possible to walk or take a scenic chairlift to these locations. To travel through the Snowy Mountains region, you can choose car hire, tour guides, bus services, train services and private charters to explore destinations outside of the Thredbo area.
