Skiing in Australia


Most of people know Australia for its many beautiful white sandy beaches, but it's time to leave the sand for the snow this winter. Escape a weekend or a week from the city or the farm, because there is no better place than the snowy mountains to recharge your batteries. The Kosciusko National Park is known for its ski resorts both by the quality of the slopes and by its hotels. This absolutely sublime place is one of the oldest alpine landscapes in the world. Throughout winter the mountains and the famous Blue Lake are covered with snow which gives you the opportunity to discover unique landscapes you can’t see anywhere else in Australia.

Perisher, Thredbo, Charlotte Pass and Selwyn Snow Resorts are the four largest and best-known ski resorts. The high season starts on July 5th and ends on August 30th. The low season - a bit cheaper - starts mid-June a bit earlier and ends a bit later mid-September. Work n’ Holiday agency offers you amazing valuable packages for Thredbo and Perisher which are the most appreciated. The packages include everything: transport from Sydney (or a departure from Melbourne can also be organized), nights in a hostel or hotel, meals, ski and snowboard equipment rental, lessons etc.

If you work the week or don’t have much time or budget, but still want to escape and discover the Australian mountains and tracks, you can still leave on a Friday night and return on Sunday night. That’s also an option we do offer! With 2037 meters high, Thredbo ski resort is the highest ski resort in Australia. No matter what your ski level is, you will find a slope that suits you in its 480 hectares. And if you’re a bit worried about how much it is going to snow, be aware that the resort has many snow guns which will allow you to ski even at the beginning or end of the season.

Regarding Perisher, a few kilometres away from Thredbo, it is the largest ski resort in the entire Southern Hemisphere with four peaks, Mount Perisher, Guthega, Blue Cow and Smiggin Holes. It's a paradise for snowboarders with five snow parks and 70 cool slopes. After hitting the slopes, visit the festive chalets at the bottom for a hot chocolate or a pint while listening to local music bands. Alternatively if you’re cold or need a rest, enter your lodge in front of Lake Jindabyne and enjoy a large choice of bistros, restaurants, night clubs spa and saunas. This weekend is made for you if you want to combine rest and fun! Feel free to contact Work n’ Holiday agency at for great tips and discounts for your snow trip!
