Faster pas­sage to snow­fields

North East Tourist News - - Corryong -

IT’S now even faster to get to the Vic­to­rian Snow­fields of Falls Creek and Hotham Alpine Re­sorts with the Hol­brook by­pass in NSW fi­nally open to the pub­lic.

In the old days it may have been a 10 hour trip in the fam­ily EH sta­tion wagon, but over the years the time to get from Syd­ney to Mel­bourne has been shaved off by three hours with the Hol­brook by­pass as the fi­nal link in the Hume Free­way be­tween Mel­bourne and Syd­ney.

It is now dual car­riage­way for its en­tire length of 880km with 49 towns by­passed, 22 of th­ese in NSW.

Syd­neysiders and be­yond can now en­joy an easy and en­joy­able drive south to two of Aus­tralia’s best alpine re­sorts, Falls Creek and Hotham.

Th­ese sis­ter re­sorts of­fer ski­ing and rid­ing on the one ‘snow pass’ at both re­sorts, with a heli link avail­able for guests who want to day trip be­tween the moun­tains and ex­plore more ter­rain – all 775 hectares on two moun­tains.

The re­sorts are open year round and pro­vide a range of ac­tiv­i­ties from ski­ing, snow­board­ing, snow­tub­ing, day spas and dogsled­ding in win­ter, through to hik­ing, cy­cling, fish­ing and events in sum­mer.
