Weddings Snowy Mountains
The Australian mainland's highest mountain, Mount Kosciuszko, is situated in Kosciuszko National Park. The park covers 6,900 square kilometres, or 2,664 miles, of diverse landscape that ranges from pockets of cool temperate rainforest to drier forests and woodlands. Pastimes in the park include snow sports, biking, camping, climbing, and horseback riding.
Yarrangobilly Caves in Kosciuszko National Park is a limestone cave that features stalagmites, stalactites, and decorations like cave corals and shawls. Six show caves, which include a thermal pool that is fed by a natural spring, are open for exploration. The largest cave, South Glory, is explored on a self-guided tour while the other caves offer guided tours.
The region is well known for the Snowy Mountains Scheme, regarded as one of the engineering wonders of the world. This hydroelectricity and irrigation complex is highlighted at the state-of-the-art Snowy Hydro Discovery Centre. The Centre houses an exhibition hall that includes hands-on exhibits, interactive displays, and a photographic collection.
Summer sport enthusiasts find much to do in the Snowy Mountains. The area is renowned as a premier trout fishing region. Lakes and dams are filled with trout and other fish species, and rivers and streams offer good fishing opportunities too. Popular fishing spots are Lake Eucumbene, Lake Jindabyne, Khancoban Pondage, Blowering Dam, and Talbingo Dam.
Boaters and water skiers also use Snowy Mountains waterways. Road cyclists experience great views, light traffic loads, and challenging climbs while hikers enjoy rural trails and town sightseeing tours. Golfers enjoy their sport at venues like Coolamatong Snowy Mountains Country Club and Thredbo Golf Course.
