Activities in the Thredbo Area
Thredbo offers a wide range of activities for the sportive as well as the less active. In non-winter months the most popular activity is catching the Crackenback Express chairlift and making the 6.5km walk (13km round trip) to the summit of Mt. Kosciuszko. There are other range, mountain and valley walks that are directly accessed from the village and chairlift.
Thredbo has mountain bike hire, tennis courts, a 9 hole golf course, bobsled, Thredbo Leisure Centre with gym, squash, sports hall, climbing wall, pool with 25 & 50 metre lanes and a water slide for the kids.
River fly fishing, white water rafting, horse riding, climbing and abseiling are available in the Thredbo valley or surrounds.
During summer and autumn there are numerous sporting and cultural events including the various Mountain Bike Championships, National Runners Week, The Snowy Ride and the Thredbo Blues Festival in January. Thredbo is a very popular Easter holiday destination, as well as being a prime choice for weddings.
Kasees is an ideal venue for group bookings such as weddings, family reunions and birthday weekends away as it is a small intimate lodge offering private facilities as well as communal areas with great atmosphere – the lounge room and garden – where guests can gather.
Thredbo is a great base for visiting the Snowy Mountains Hydro-electric Scheme as well as other well known features of the Kosciuszko National Park such as Yarrangobilly Caves.
For those aiming to ‘do nothing’ Kasees offers a beautiful treed and flowering garden for relaxing and reading and making the most of the mountain sunshine.
In winter, aside from downhill skiing, boarding and telemarking, Thredbo is a great base for cross-country and snow-shoeing on the main range. On Saturday evening the famous flare run can be seen from Kasees and Banjo.
