Getting to the Alpine Way
Directions and Transfers to the Snowy Mountains

By Air

Virgin Blue and Qantas airlines fly into Canberra Airport on a regular basis from Sydney, Gold Coast and Brisbane. Canberra is approximately two hours from the Alpine Way by car (190km) and can be accessed via Car Hire from the airport. To gain the best competitive rates for flights we suggest you use www.webjet.com.au for flights to Canberra.

Alternatively during the winter months, AeroPelican are now flying from Sydney Kingsford Smith airport to Snowy Mountains Airport which is located just outside of Cooma on the way to the Jindabyne and the Alpine Way. Flights can be booked through www.aeropelican.com.au  and coach transfers can be arranged from the airport to Jindabyne, Thredbo or Perisher with Snowy Mountains Holidays.


By Road

Driving from Sydney

Follow the Hume Highway from Sydney then just south of Goulburn take the Federal Highway and travel south to Canberra. This section of the trip is on a mainly divided road. At Canberra follow the signs to the Monaro Highway to Cooma. The road then joins the Kosciuszko Rd that you follow through the town of Berridale and onto Jindabyne. Just past Jindabyne Town Centre take a left onto the Alpine Way towards Thredbo.

Driving from Melbourne

Follow the Hume Highway from Melbourne to Wodonga. Take the Murray Valley Highway "To Wodonga / Tallagatta" exit and follow the signs "To Tallangatta" Then after passing Wodonga follow the signs to Tallangatta again on the Murray Valley Highway. You pass through the village of Koetong onto Corryong. Drive through Corryong and take the "Khancoban" turn off on your right. Once in Khancoban you are only 76kms from Thredbo. For Perisher Valley and Jindabyne continue past Thredbo until you reach a T junction approximately 30km from Thredbo. The roads are clear for most of the year but when a big snow fall hits, chains may be required for some 2-wheel vehicles.
