Thredbo Village, set within the 690,000 hectares of the Kosciuszko National Park, is one of Australia's highest alpine towns. It is perched among some of Australia's highest mountains between 1365 to 1930 metres above sea level. In 1955, a Czechoslovakian with great vision saw the potential for an all year mountain resort. Tony Sponar was working as a Hydrographer for the Snowy Mountains Authority and was captivated by the snow-capped peaks and saw great prospects for a ski hill. Sponar had been a ski instructor at the renowned St Anton Resort, Austria from 1941 to 1948. He saw Thredbo developing as an Australian equivalent, with good vertical terrain and an electric atmosphere to match.
The Thredbo license is now operated by Amalgamated Holdings Limited which has a commitment to visitors, returning guests and loyal locals.
Thredbo Village provides everything you need from ski hire, gear and repair to leisure, medical and health services. The Village includes a medical centre, pharmacy, physiotherapy, massage, yoga, gymnasium, newsagency, supermarket, bakery, business centre, post office, child care, bank services and a range of coffee shops, bars and restaurants, if you would like a night out of the Lodge.
