Flora and Fauna
Valhalla Lodge is situated within Kosciuszko National Park, the largest national park in New South Wales. The park is recognised as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. There are six different wilderness areas within the park's boundaries including alpine and sub-alpine areas with plants that are not found anywhere else in the world. Native animals you could encounter include kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, echidnas, possums, antechinus, emus and a variety of birdlife. Platypus are very shy but are present in the Thredbo River near the entrance to the park. Kosciuszko National Park is home to the endangered pygmy possum and corroboree frog and contains Australia's highest mountain, Mount Kosciuszko.

Hiking and Guided Walks
Perisher and its surrounds have some of the most enjoyable walks and beautiful vistas in the Kosciuszko National Park. Valhalla is a great base for your hiking holiday. Adventure by day, comfort by night. There are so many great walks to choose from including high country and wildflower walks to forested sub-alpine terrain with abundant wildlife. Go at your own pace or on a guided walk with an experienced guide that is familiar with the area. Full, half and multi day options available.
Spring is a great time to be out and about snowshoeing in the high country of the beautiful snowy (subject to snow coverage). Take a guided snowshoe walk with K7 Adventures.

Abseiling / Rock Climbing
A fun and satisfying challenge for all ages. Half day adventures and courses available with qualified and experienced enthusiastic guides.
Fishing season is from October - June long weekends.
Valhalla Lodge is located in Perisher Valley in an elevated bush backed position with stunning panoramic views. During November/December there is parking available at the lodge and more in the nearby car park (500m). National Park overnight/entrance fees apply and are payable directly to National Parks.
Note that it can snow at anytime of the year and weather in the mountains can change quickly.

November is the best time to visit the Snowy Mountains! Roads are deserted, the walking tracks are open, the wildflowers are out, it's fishing season, there are no pesky march flies and there may even be some snow on the range adding to the beauty and adventure!
