Getting around Thredbo

Find the best ways to travel to, from and around Thredbo.

As Thredbo is a small ski village visitors often simply get around town on foot, and walk to the ski hill and to their accommodation.

If you’re not driving, shuttle buses are provided throughout the village during winter. These run from 7:30am to 9pm daily. During July and August, a special service runs until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.

All the main destinations, primarily the ski lifts, restaurants and accommodation, are accessible on foot or using the shuttle service.
