Where to stop in Canberra on your way to the Snowy Mountains

For many Sydneysiders, a trip to the snow involves thundering down the highway for 6 hours on Friday evening, skirting around Canberra, heading through Cooma and Jindabyne and then straight on to Thredbo or Perisher. However, there is a more civilized way to get to the snow—spending a night or two in Australia's capital city, Canberra.

Canberra is located approximately halfway between Sydney and the Snowy Mountains, making it an ideal pitstop on your journey. Whether you're planning a weekend getaway or a week-long adventure to the Snowy Mountains, consider adding Canberra to your itinerary.

If you have decided to travel to Canberra in your itinerary, then why not book your luxury accommodation in advance with Accommodate Canberra and take the stress out of finding the right place to stay.

Accommodate Canberra is the region's most trusted luxury and family accommodation provider in Canberra.
