Snowy River Country

Slab Hut Orbost-650x410

A major river in south-eastern Australia, the mighty Snowy River begins in Kosciuszko National Park NSW and winds 352 kilometres south until it reaches the sea at Marlo, in East Gippsland.

Snowy River Country spans from the forests to the sea, including the rugged high country around McKillops Bridge, the honeycomb labyrinth of the Buchan Caves to the majestic stands of remnant coastal rainforest near Marlo and Cape Conran Coastal Park. Discover the adventure, legend and romance of the Snowy River in the towns of Buchan, Marlo and Orbost, or the high country settlements of Goongerah, Bonang, Bendoc and Tubbut.


Take a day or two to explore Snowy River Country on the Snowy River Country Trail, a 285-kilometre drive through the region’s magnificent natural and heritage attractions. The trail is suitable for cars all year around, but not for caravans or trailers. Some roads may be unsealed, narrow or windy in parts. You can chose to raft it, walk it, 4WD it, or just take photos of it - the Snowy is all about adventure! This region has much to offer - Buchan Caves Reserve, Snowy River National Park and Alpine National Park and towns that are brimming with country hospitality.
