In response to this thread (viewtopic.php?f=29&t=4392
), we journeyed south on New Years Day with the intention of taking in Canberra and Questacon and then the Snowy Mountains.
Questacon was great. Kids had a ball and so did the parents. Definately worth a visit and a full day would be required. We stayed as the Canberra South Motor Park. It was adequate for the 2 night stay and would be reasonable base for exploring the delights of the Canberra region.
Jindabyne Holdiay Park was the next stop. A brilliant park located right on the lake and close into town. The park is a popular destination for the boaty set as it allows easy launching access to the Lake. Both the powered and non-powered sites situated on the north part of the park have fantastic views of the lake and surrounding mountains.
We spent time swimming and relaxing (be careful during summer as the sun is pretty potent). It was extremely dry and on some days quite windy.
We did the summit walk up Kousi from Thredbo. Picked a pearler of day as the weather was clear and still. I'd encourage you to take this walk as it's pretty stratight-forward, 13kms all up. The mountains are spectacular at this time of year with little streams and wild flowers in abundance.
We took a drive done the Alpine Way to Tom Groggin. Great spot right on the Murray and perfect place for 4-5 days.
