A little bit of history

The Thredbo Alpine Resort is nestled within the stunning Kosciuszko National Park at the foot of the Crackenback Range, situated next to the snow fed Thredbo River which runs through the resort. The village sits at an altitude of 1,380 meters.

The Thredbo area was originally used as grazing land by local cattlemen. Graziers from surrounding districts brought their cattle up in summer to graze on the snowgrass plains, and took them back to the low country in winter. The cattlemen were responsible for the construction of most of the alpine huts and for naming many of the geographical features of the area. Cattle grazing was banned in the Kosciuszko National Park in 1957.

The construction of the Snowy Mountains Scheme opened up the alpine areas, and brought many European migrants with skiing experience to the area. One of these migrants was Tony Sponar, who identified the location of Thredbo, and, with Charles Anton, was one of its founders.  In May 1955, the Kosciusko Chairlift and Thredbo Hotel Syndicate was formed. In 1956 first chairlifts and ski runs were constructed.

The charming alpine village is now known as Australia’s Best Year Round Alpine Resort. When the mountain is fully covered by snow, Thredbo has the longest ski runs in Australia. In summer, Thredbo is a hiking and summer sport destination.
