Staying in Selwyn
Sleep soundly in the Snowy Mountains Motel
Formerly known as Mount Selwyn, today the Selwyn Snowfields are one of most popular places to ski in the Snowy Mountains. Though there is no accommodation in Selwyn itself, the nearby town of Adaminaby is well served by a variety of places to stay.
The Snowy Mountains Motel is not only one of the closest places to stay to Selwyn Snowfields, it’s also one of the most comfortable. Featuring a mix of deluxe rooms and family-style accommodation, this high country haunt also offers a range of amenities, including a fully licenced restaurant, exclusive bar and lounge area, full-sized tennis court and conference facilities.
Kick up your feet in an alpine cottage
Scattered along the Snowy Mountains Highway in the heart of the high country are numerous self-contained cottages, perfect for kicking up your feet in after a long day on the slopes. The Snowy Mountains Alpine Cottages are located just a half-hour drive from Selwyn Snowfields and contain fully equipped kitchens and gas heating, as well as offering stunning vistas over the surrounding Snowy Mountains landscape.
The nearby Gooandra Alpine cottages are located amid 50 hectares of secluded back country, with dense native bushland surrounding the exclusive four-cottage property on all sides. It’s the perfect place to pitch up for a ski stay, or to otherwise cast a line in nearby Lake Eucumbene in the quest for some local trout.
Call in on a country pub
One of the joys of travelling and skiing in Selwyn is the chance to meet the locals and revel in some genuine country hospitality. That’s precisely what you’ll do on a stay at the Snow Goose Hotel Motel, which boasts not only traditional pub meals and facilities, but also on-site motel rooms for anyone looking to extend their stay.
Rooms at the Snow Goose come complete with a continental breakfast, but more importantly they’re also just a stone’s throw from the snowfields. The summer months are also a great time to visit, with nearby Lake Eucumbene a popular spot for picnics on the shores of this popular Snowy Mountains recreational spot.
