Our guide to Thredbo's restaurant, bars and nightlife
When your legs can take no more and you’re ready to head off the slopes, Thredbo Village is up for the taking. Those who still haven’t sweated it out enough can make their way to the Thredbo Leisure Centre for a gym sesh, a game of squash or just to sink into their wonderful heated pool. Otherwise there’s a wealth of bars, restaurants and cafes to replenish all that spent energy.
Merritts Mountain House
Perched on the mountain at 1,660 metres, Merritts is ideal for a mid-ski refuel or place to warm up. There's the usual snacks like wraps, salads and pastries, plus heartier fare like lamb shanks and goulash. Plus, you can't pass on the famous hot chocolates.

The Bullwheel Bar and Bistro at Eagles Nest
A must-visit, the Bullwheel Bar and Bistro is Australia’s highest bar and bistro and can be found at the top of the Kosciuszko Express Chairlift. The hot choc, espresso coffee, gluhwein or schnapps will really warm you up on a cold winter’s day.

Cascades Bar and Grill
If you're looking to treat yourself, this is the place to go. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, and presenting them all in the most exquisite manner, this is fine dining Thredbo-style.
Thredbo Alpine Hotel, Thredbo Village
Actually, we stand corrected. This is the place where you need to treat yourself. It’s been named the Best Restaurant in the Southern Region NSW and also lays claim to the title of "Thredbo’s slickest restaurant". Book a table now to see if the claims are true.

Wildbrumby Distillery Door and Cafe
Sitting about 20 minutes from Thredbo Village, the distillery and cafe serves European-inspired fare in a family-friendly environment. There’s coffee, cake, German beer, schnapps and a must-do tasting tour – because we take our schnapps seriously. It's definitely worth the short trip.
