WHERE CAN I PARK MY CAR?
While the apartment doesn't have a reserved parking space, there are six unreserved spaces outside Tombarra which may be available on arrival. If these are full, you can double park outside the front door in Bobuck lane to unload (please allow space for cars to pass while you're unloading) and then park in one of Thredbo's overnight carparks, just off Friday Drive (back toward Friday Flat) and only 5 minutes walk away.
WHERE DO I PICK UP THE KEYS?
Tombarra 4B has a coded front door lock, so no key pick up is required. You will be provided with the door code prior to your stay by the booking agent.
HOW FAR IS IT TO THE SKI SLOPES?
Tombarra 4B is a 5 minute walk to the Valley terminal in the main village, where you can catch Kosckiuszko Express lift, Snowgums Chairlift or the Merritts Chairlift. The apartment is 10 minutes walk to Friday Flat, which is the beginner ski area, and where you can catch the Gunbarrel Chairlift. Since Tombarra 4B is on Bobuck lane just across from the Thredbo River, the walk in both directions is flat. You can also catch the main Thredbo shuttle bus service to Friday Flat from a bus stop just 2 minutes walk away toward the Valley Terminal on Friday Drive (at the end of the Thredbo Alpine apartment parking area, across Bobuck lane from the Service Station).
WHERE CAN I BUY GROCERIES AND OTHER SUPPLIES?
There is a small supermarket in Thredbo, as well as a Chemist and newsagent, along with many restaurants, a bakery and cafes, ski shops and other retail. Jindabyne has a greater variety of shops, including a Woolworths Supermarket.
WHERE CAN I HIRE SKI GEAR OR BIKES?
Thredbo has ski hire (winter) and bike hire (summer). Jindabyne, Cooma and Berridale also offer a wide range of ski hire options in winter.
ENTRY TO KOSIUSZKO NATIONAL PARK
Since Thredbo is situated within the National park, you will be required to pay an entry fee to cover the length of your stay at Tombarra 4B. We suggest you visit the Koscisuszko National Park website for the latest information about park entry fees:
Please be aware that National Parks staff check for correct display of entry tickets on vehicles parked in Thredbo regularly throughout the year, and often daily during winter.
WILL I NEED CHAINS IN WINTER?
Kosciuszko National Park recommend that vehicles should carry chains in the park between the June and October long weekends, over winter. They are required by law for 2WD vehicles if you wish to drive on the Kosciusko Road past the Thredbo river (up towards Perisher Resort), on the Alpine way from Thredbo to Tom Groggin, or on the Guthega Road. KNP also recommend carrying chains into Thredbo from Jindabyne, as they may be required, depending on the weather conditions. Please be aware that although you may not need then to get here, conditions may change substantially during your stay, and you may need them when you leave. Chains can be hired from Jindabyne or Cooma, and Khancoban. We suggest you visit this link to view information about driving in snow:
