Discover the magic of the Upper Murray with Snowy Mountain Holidays. We offer a small, personalised tourist destination located on the border between North-East Victoria and Southern NSW, Australia. At 330m (1000 ft) elevation, we look out over the Murray River and onto lush river flats, undulating hills and in the distance the Snowy Mountain Range – One of the best views in Australia.

We provide 2 cottages to accommodate our guests. There is plenty to do between fishing, canoeing, bush walks, bicycling, scenic walks and drives, bird watching, swimming, golf and tennis. Or you can just relax and enjoy the views.

Our self-contained cottages combine character with comfort. Each cottage is uniquely constructed with open beams and plenty of atmosphere. Balconies offer views of the Towong Valley and Upper Murray Valley. The cottages are fully self-contained with kitchen, bathroom and all linen provided. Both cottages are reverse cycle air -conditioned.

Cottage number one features one bedroom with two double beds. In the lounge room there is a bunk and double sofa bed. The wood combustion stove ensures a very cosy stay in the cooler months.

Cottage #2 is larger and upstairs above the off street undercover parking. It features one bedroom with a double bed and set of bunks, another double bed off the loungeroom and a double sofa bed in the lounge room.

Meals are available with advance notice. Guests choosing full catering or Bed and Breakfast will dine in the dining room of Ron and Sarah’s spacious log cabin style house with spectacular views from the deck. Dinner consists of a 3 course meal. BYO. Breakfast starts with fresh fruits, cereal, juice, ground coffee, tea and finishes with local free range eggs, bacon and home made bread for toast. Of course, if you catch a trout, we are happy to cook it up for your breakfast.

Snowy Mountain Holidays offers an excellent location to holiday with your pet. We are located on a dead-end road, surrounded by pastureland and well away from any main road, which provides a safe location for your pet. There are quiet roads to walks along and the river is always a favourite. Clean dogs are allowed in the cottages by arrangement. Dogs are not allowed on any furniture. Dogs are welcome to enjoy the property, but must be cleaned up after. Rose, our 11 year old Blue Heeler cross has retired from catching rabbits and playing with other dogs. She spends most of her time discreetly accepting handouts at the frequent BBQs and rolling over for a tummy rub. She loves children and playing with them on the lawn and around the fruit trees.

We have been a trout fishing destination for over 20 years in the heart of one of Australia’s blue ribbon trout locales. Not surprising when you discover that the mmediate region has 180 km of mountain fed rivers and streams, a major tail water and numerous lakes and pondages… and all in idyllic location. The Upper Murray river is 500 metres away and offers an excellent location for doing your own thing or hiring a guide. Most guided canoe trips are on the Murray or Swampy Plans rivers. Beautiful meadow and alpine streams are also nearby for those preferring walk and wade fishing. Ron has 30 years trout fishing experience with fly and lure in Australia and North America. Lessons and equipment are available to suit anyone from an absolute beginner to the very experienced angler. Trout are from 500 g to 2.5 kg (6 lb) with a few larger monsters taken on occasions. Browns predominate but some nice Rainbows can be taken at times. We specialise in both wet and dry fly fishing and lure fishing. Guided fishing tours include a safe canoe float trip along with lunch. Some premium locations are easily reached by a short drive and walk. The fishing season is from the first weekend in October to the first weekend in June.


Snowy Mountain Holidays is a unique base camp destination for a bike riding vacation. We cater to smaller groups for riding in NE Victoria/SE New South Wales. Because of our proximity to the Snowy Mountains and the Upper Murray River area, there is great versatility for either short rides or day trips. The roads are an excellent ride, winding around rivers or through hills and mountains with little traffic to distract you. We offer undercover safe parking. We can provide meals or shop in Corryong (12k away) and do your own cooking in your cottage.

Cycle through the lush river flats and pastoral foothills of the Upper Murray area. Valley roads have maximum views and minimum traffic. Hire one of our mountain bikes or book a tour with our guide to explore the hidden valleys, views and charming country pubs. Lunches and drop off/pick up service are available. The potential for Mountain Bike adventure in the area is unlimited and Ron is currently exploring some exciting options for guests.


Float down the Upper Murray River by canoe. What better way to explore the area and river? Drift lazily in the dappled light. Plenty of time to throw in a line, swim or capture the moment on film. Also a great way to view the bird life. Our guided canoe tours include all safety equipment and a delicious lunch. No experience is necessary. Each trip is between 15-24 km long. Limit 8 people. If you have canoe experience, we also offer self guided trips which include all canoeing equipment. We offer drop-off and pick-up service.


Snowy Mountain Holidays is located near 3 national parks: Kosciuszko National Park. Alpine National Park and Burrowa-Pine Mountain National Park. Between the three, there is plenty of bushwalking available. Kosciuszko National Park is of special interest as it contains: the highest mountains and most extensive alpine snowfields in Australia; the headwaters of our greatest river system, the Murray River; and many unique forms of animal and plant life. The winter snow, the summer wildflowers and the grand vistas of Mt. Kosciuszko are unequalled in the land. Mt. Kosciuszko is the highest mountain in Australia (2228m) and both national and international travellers enjoy walking to the top of Australia. In order to protect the unique flora of the park, a walking track has been built making it an easy going walk. Above the timberline, it is a 14k walk (round trip) from the tip of the chair lift at the ski area of thredbo, NSW. We are 1 1/2 hr drive from Thredbo. Snowy Mountain Holidays offers organised day walks to Mt. Kosciuszko supplying transport and lunch.

Bird Watching

Australia’s native birds are of great interest to both the novice and expert bird watcher. Snowy Mountain Holidays enjoys a number of native bird species which frequent our gardens. Many are here all year long, many are migratory and frequent seasonally. Some of the more interesting species are the Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo, Kookaburras, many types of honey eaters, Superb Fairy Wrens and many more. When spending time on or by the river you are able to see a variety of different species of birds who frequent the river and surrounding lowlands. In the air there are often hawks, ibis, kites, pelicans, the Nankeen Kestrel and occasionally a Wedge-tailed Eagle. You will always be entertained by Crimson Rosellas, Galahs and Sulphur Crested White Cockatoos. The Upper Murray area and surrounding national parks have a generous array of wildlife with wallabies, kangaroos, emus, platypus, wombats and echidna.
