The consensus is that everyone had a great time on our recent Snowy Mountains Hydro Majestic tour!
Our signature tour in the Snowy Mountains of New South Wales focusses on the history, and the far reaching impacts of the Snowy Mountains Hydro Electric Scheme which was built between 1949 and 1974. One of the most wonderful things about ‘The Scheme’ is that most of its assets are housed within the spectacular and unique Kosciuszko National Park, so we also get to enjoy the beauty of this special place.
We started with a visit to the Snowy Hydro Discovery Centre in Cooma to learn about the corporate management of The Scheme, and then onto the Snowy Scheme Museum in Adaminaby.
It was then on to Yarrangobilly Caves in the Kosciuszko National Park for a cave tour with the fabulous Bernie, and an overnight stay in the heritage 1917 Caves House.
The next day we toured via Talbingo to view the largest power station in The Scheme, Tumut 3, and Talbingo Reservoir which is part of Snowy 2.0 which is currently under construction.
After an enjoyable stay in Tumbarumba, we had breakfast at the magnificent Braymont Gardens, before heading back into the national park on our way to Jindabyne.
The weather gods were kind to us and we got to see Mt Kosciuszko! We also visited Guthega to view Guthega Dam and Pondage, and had an exhilarating chairlift ride in Thredbo Village before lunch at Australia’s highest distillery.
Two happy campers at the Wild Brumby Distillery near Thredbo.On our last day we had some platypus education and a town tour in Dalgety, before a visit to the sublime Charles Davis Gallery in Cooma.
“Dear Janine and Jeff. Thanks for another wonderful holiday – super organisation and safe driving. We enjoyed seeing new places and revisiting others – memories of years ago. Great research on finding delicious places to eat and lovely comfortable motels. The new bus was good too. Looking forward to Dubbo. Cheers, Suzanne and Tony” (the good looking couple above!)
