Planning a trip to the New South Wales snowfields this winter? Maybe you should! And on the way, enjoy a snow stopover at Crowne Plaza Canberra, only a short detour from the highway to the Snowy Mountains. Or for new or young snow bunnies, Corin Forest is magical first snow experience and only a 40-minute drive from Canberra city.
