Village Life

There is plenty to do without having to go far. Just across the road from the Hotel in the centre of the Village, there are places to shop and enjoy coffee or lunch. Just a short stroll away is the Leisure Centre which houses a 50m pool, water-slide, gym and recreational facilities. You can play a round of golf on the nine hole golf course  down by the river surrounded by stunning scenery. There are also tennis courts and a bobsled to be enjoyed by young and old. Further afield there are beautiful scenic walks along the Thredbo River or if your feeling more energetic you can explore Mt. Kosciusko.

Snowy Mountains bushwalking is unique and varied from High Country walks to the forested sub-alpine terrain with its abundance of wildlife, wildflowers and alpine huts. K7 Adventures guides can offer you a range of satisfying walks that inspire, uplift and exhilarate you. The walking season opens late October (you may need snow shoes in the alpine area) and extends right through to the end of May just before the first winter snows. Walking in the Australian alpine area is truly addictive with its cool temperatures and lofty altitudes with stunning views. K7 Adventures will take you to some very special places.

Rock climbing is fun, satisfying and everyone can have a go! For a family and a group of friends it can be the highlight of your holiday. Of course outdoor climbing is for all ages – K7 Adventures take the very young and the not so very young. Their job is to ensure that you have lots of fun in a safe environment. They can take you on a half day, an ‘easy’ day (a bit more than a half day) or a full day climbing & abseiling.
