Snow play at Mt Selwyn
Snow play at Mt Selwyn, Canberra,Australia
Phone: Not available
When the weather's chilly there are myriad snowy locations within driving distance, but it's important to keep an eye on road closures. Mt Selwyn is a nicely built-up, tourist-friendly option, around 2.5 hours out of the city in NSW's Kosciuszko National Park. You'll need chains on your 2WD, which you can hire from the local service station, and a daily National Park vehicle fee applies. Once you're in though, the snowfields are as rewarding as some of Australia's top skiing and snowboarding meccas.
