With lots of snow expected to fall over the next few weeks, now is the best time to pack your bags and head to Perisher or Thredbo over the weekend. There are a bunch of activities for kids, parents and everyone in between!
If you’re heading down to Perisher with the entire family, Tube Town is the place to be. The specially groomed lanes allow participants of all ages to enjoy the slopes, plus catch a purpose built lift back up! Ideal for first-time skiers or those who want to enjoy a relaxed environment.
Bring the kids for their first taste of the snow to Wombat World at Perisher where they can learn the ropes. They can practice techniques such as freestyle, small jumps and get used to the snow.
It’s not all about skiing and enjoying the physical side of your weekend away! Indulge in one of the many restaurants, bars and cafes at Thredbo. Treat yourself to a pampering massage or facial after a long day of snow sports.
Perisher Night Skiing
Enjoy Perishers night skiing activities which will allow you to see the stars. The slopes are open from 6:30pm-9:00pm where a chairlift will transport you directly to the top of Front Valley.
Thredbo Leisure Centre
Relax and take it easy at Thredbo Leisure Centre which is filled with countless activities for the entire family. Go to the gym, take a dip in the heated indoor pool (with a water slide), or play a game of basketball. It’ll be a nice change from the chilly weather outside!
