Snowy Mountains Tour

3-5 November 2012

If you could choose anywhere in Australia for a few days driving on brilliant roads through spectacular countryside, the Snowy Mountains would have to be at the top of your list.

This tour seeks out the best of the deserted alpine roads, picturesque villages and wonderful accommodation.

The roads;         are all sealed, they carry little traffic through breathtaking scenery with corners that are frequent and entertaining.

The accommodation; is based at the Lake Crackenback Resort. I have stayed with groups here previously and everyone has been delighted with the relaxed comfort and exceptional food.

The resort also offers a range of activities for those who do not feel up to a quick lap of the mountains on Day 2.

The schedule;  has been planned to be as flexible as possible. Apart from the overnight stops, you can set your own timetable. Follow the route chart through the Country Roads or take a short cut to the next stop  or take time out to sight see or bushwalk.

The scenery is spectacular. All roads used have a good sealed surface. Traffic is very light and this is an ideal time of year.

The Cars;         All of our tours are designed for a wide range of cars, everything from Ferraris to Hyundais have come on tours. The important thing is to have a good time in whatever you bring.

However, if you would like to drive something a little more exotic that your daily drive, we can now offer a range of Porsche Boxsters for hire.
