Snowy Mountains Region, NSW
I’ve grown up going down to Thredbo every single year. It’s where my brother, Eddy, & I learnt to ski and where I did two seasons ski instructing. This was all because of Dad. He is truly ski obsessed and it’s trickled down to both of his kids (while Mum, who broke her leg in 6 places while skiing, relaxes by the fire with a book in hand). I feel as if the Snowy Mountains region of NSW is my home away from home. But little did I know just how little I knew about this incredible region before going on this amazing five day food & wine odyssey/extravaganza!
Destination NSW reached out to Dad & I to see if we wanted to do a story on this particularly stunning region of the beautiful state that we call home. We couldn’t say ‘yesssssssssssss!!!!’ fast enough! It was seriously a dream come true having the opportunity to discover more about the region that we already love so much!
Thredbo is approximately a 6 hour drive south from Sydney. In the past, we have only ever deviated off from the main highway to stay a night in Canberra. We would usually get there late and leave early the next morning without having the chance to explore around the region at all. With Destination NSW putting our itinerary together, we got to visit so many places we previously wouldn’t have thought about going to. It was the most incredible adventure – see the images and our itinerary below.
