Just like the saying goes, it's not the drive but the journey that takes you there. We live in a big country and the Snowy Mountains is worth the drive!
Most people who travel to the Snowy Mountains are self drive visitors and its always an inspiration when you drive to the Snowies and you see your first glimpse of the mountains in the distance.
In winter, chains are required to be carried at all times for all 2WD’s only. This does not mean you have to fit them each day you drive to the snow. Tourism Snowy Mountains advise that you seek advice on how to fit chains when you hire or purchase them. Most service stations and equipment hire shops hire snow chains.
Kosciuszko National Park use fees apply year round.
