Thredbo Valley Track
Time Out says
Thredbo's summer drawcard is one of the state's most thrilling biking trails
A trip to Thredbo is a winter staple for many Sydney snow seekers, but the region’s mountainous slopes are just as worthy of a visit in the warmer months. One of the biggest summertime draws is Thredbo’s mountain biking track – a versatile trail that has terrain to suit riders of all abilities, from aspiring Evel Knievels to less hell-for-leather novices.
Completed in December 2019, a massive new extension through Kosciuszko National Park has more than doubled the length of the track, from 16.7 kilometres to 35.1 kilometres. The new addition runs from Bullocks Flat to Gaden Trout Hatchery, and features some of the most technically demanding spots on the trail, with tight switchback bends and steep climbs to challenge even the most gnarly of adrenaline junkies.
And yet, while you may be enjoying some wild times, you'll be doing it in beautifully serene surroundings. The region boasts some truly world-beating alpine views, dotted with gum forests, snow gum woodland and open grassland pastures. The Thredbo Valley Track is open from November to May, subject to weather and bushfire conditions, so make sure you check the National Parks website in advance when you’re planning your visit.
