The Ski Resort
The Perisher ski area is located in southeast Australia in Kosciuszko National Park in the Snowy Mountains. With an area of 1,250 ha and over 100 slopes, it is the largest ski area in Australia and the southern hemisphere. Instead of conifers, the so-called snow gums, snow eucalyptus trees, shape the landscape along the slope.
The ski area extends over seven mountain peaks, with access to the slopes in four villages. The centre is Perisher Village. The Alpine railway Skitube, which takes skiers from Bullocks Flat through a tunnel into the Perisher Resort, also stops here.
Snow Safety & Snowmaking
There are several bus connections to Perisher. Buses depart from Sydney and Canberra to the ski area.
Canberra Airport is 2.5 hours from the ski area. Flights from several Australian cities stop here, including Sydney and Melbourne.
