    Every year countless visitors stop at Wildbrumby Schnapps Distillery for a tasting, lunch and advice on how to enjoy the mountains.

    Now, weve distilled our local knowledge into The Five Minute Gallop, a guide to the experiences available in the Thredbo Valley and surrounds.

    The area is famous for winter and skiing, but with warm long days and cool relaxing evenings this is the perfect time to visit.

    Experience the natural beauty of the mountains on foot, or head out on horseback. Spend the day fishing, playing golf, biking or just sitting watching the river flow. Then enjoy relaxing drinks as the sun sets over the Snowys, and great food made with local ingredients.

    So come for a day, a weekend or a longer stay. Wed love to show you around!

    There is something magical about horse riding in the Snowy Mountains. The wild surroundings, breathtaking scenery, amazing wildlife: an environment unlike anywhere else on earth. Rides can be catered to all levels, from absolute beginners to the experienced thrill seeker. Young children too small to ride a full-size horse can still join in the fun through pony rides. The kids will love it, and for the family photographer its a dream come true!

    For those who prefer to take in the scenery on foot, dont miss the many and varied hiking trails. Naturally one of the most popular walks and almost a rite of passage for visitors to the region is the trip to the top of Mt Kosciuszko, the highest point on the Australian continent. There are two main ways to head to the top of Kosi: straight out of Thredbo with a flying start up the hill on the Kosciuszko Express chairlift, or from Charlotte Pass on the Summit Road.

    Kosciuszko National Park is one of the largest parks in Australia, and there are numerous walks to suit day trippers or seasoned trekkers. Take a day walk to a glacial lake, stay overnight on the Main Range Track, or head out for a multiple night adventure. The mountains are stunning in spring and summer with the wild flowers in bloom, cool and relaxing in autumn, and they present a stark beauty after the first snowfalls as the area starts to head into the ski season.

    The Five Minute Gallop area includes some of the best fishing including fly fishing in Australia. If youve never been fly fishing before the rivers of the Snowy Mountains are a great place to start: tuition and equipment is available for beginners but if youve already mastered the basics local fly fishing guides can help show you the best locations to fish and how to further improve your technique.

    From eco-habitats to cosy bed and breakfasts to luxury you can always find accommodation to suit. So what are you waiting for? We look forward to sharing the wonders of the Five Minute Gallop with you. n

    Wildbrumby Schnapps Distillery is at the heart of the Five Minute Gallop and is a Snowy Mountains experience like no other.
