Smiggin Holes | snowholidays.com.au

Smiggin Holes has three types of accommodation: Lodge Style where breakfast and meal packages are available, Hotels with meals and plenty of additional services and then there are a limited amount of Self Contained Apartments with kitchen facilities. 

Have you ever wondered where the name Smiggin Holes comes from? The name is actually Scottish and was the term used to describe the holes in the land created by hundreds of cattle when accessing rock salt left out for them by graziers. It's that simple.

The Smiggins that we know today now has excellent terrain for our beginner guests and families with a bowl where everyone returns to the same place when finishing their runs. Smiggins is protected from the weather and has a variety of restaurants and lodging options for guests. Smiggins has easy access to Perisher Valley and then on to Blue Cow or Guthega for those ready to explore our four resort areas. 

Smiggins is loved by many locals because it provides something for all skills levels, from the beginners who have never seen snow before, through to the experienced looking for the fresh snow. With a mixture of Green and Blue runs including Plummer's, Wood Run and Racecourse, there really is something for everyone.

Driving to Smiggins is a 30 minute drive from Jindabyne Town Centre. This is a great way to see our beautiful landscape and get some pretty spectacular views of Jindabyne on the way up. There is a car park that is available for day use only and then you just walk from your car right onto the snow. If you're driving up to Smiggins, keep in mind that you're legally required to carry properly fitting chains in any vehicle other than 4WD's within the National Park. 

The other option is to jump on board the Skitube at Bullocks Flat and then catch the free shuttle bus from the Perisher Skitube building directly to Smiggins.

Driving to Smiggin Holes

Whatever your preference in getting to the Snowy Mountains, Ski 'n Save Snow Holidays are happy to help you find the best possible way for you and your group to help take the hassle out of organising a holiday! The NSW Snowfields are easy to get to with direct flights from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane to Canberra. From there, you can either hire a car or catch a coach transfer to the snow.

Snow Chains: It is a requirement that all vehicles except 4WDs carry properly fitting chains at all times on the road to Smiggin Holes and Perisher Valley. These can be hired at most service stations on your way to Jindabyne or we can organize them for you from our Jindabyne Hire Partner.

Kosciuszko National Park entry: You will be required to pay an entry fee for the National Park (Smiggin Holes and Perisher Valley lie inside the National Park) which is $29 per vehicle per day if you are proceeding into the village, whether you are parking overnight or for the day only. Alternatively you can purchase an annual pass for $190. These passes can be purchased from Jindabyne in the Snowy Region Visitors Centre, or at the National Parks gates as you pass through.

Day Parking: There is ample free DAY PARKING ONLY available in the Perisher Valley and Smiggin Holes car parks. Some accommodation providers have overnight car-parking on site - note that this may be at an additional charge.
