Travellers looking to escape the city and swap crowded spots for wide open spaces and nature are being lured to NSW’s high country for summer shenanigans. Mountain biking and hiking are high on their ‘must do’ lists.

Australia’s premier mountain bike park offers the only summer long chairlift access in the country with 34-kilometres of bike trails to explore including downhill, all-mountain and cross-country trails. There’s also a pump track and skills park for all ages to practice their skills. This year is the first time Thredbo will be offering a School Holiday Mountain Bike Camp and Development squad. 

There’s also yoga and wellness retreats on offer with a highly renowned yoga teacher guiding participants through yoga and meditation sessions.

“We’re already seeing a lot of interest from guests pre-purchasing their hiking and mountain bike passes for summer. It’s great to see everyone getting behind Australian businesses after the year the community has had with bushfires and COVID-19. I’m looking forward to everyone escaping to our unique Alpine environment and enjoying the wide-open spaces our mountains offer,’’ Thredbo General Manager Stuart Diver said.

Thredbo is world-renowned as a winter destination and in warmer months the resort transforms into an incredible summer playground and hiking mecca. With more than 20 hikes on offer, Thredbo offers a unique experience for visitors to summit Mt Kosciuszko, Australia’s highest mountain. Travellers can stand on the roof of Australia and take in some of the best views in the country with stunning vistas of the iconic Snowy Mountains. The 13-kilometre journey takes between 4-6 hours and is family friendly. 

“This summer is the perfect time to make the ultimate pilgrimage to the top of Mt Kosciuszko. Everyone should tick this off their bucket list with the family over summer, the experience will be unforgettable,” Mr Diver said.
