Make A Country Change To The Snowy Valleys

The picturesque Snowy Valleys is situated around 400 km’s from Sydney, 450km from Melbourne and 200 km from Canberra. The region covers nearly 9,000 km 2, primarily used for forestry, timber processing, agriculture, cool-climate horticulture, manufacturing, national parks, ecotourism and small regional centres. The local government area is made up of 2 main town centres, Tumbarumba and Tumut, as well as a number of smaller towns and villages all accessible within an hour’s drive ofeach other.

The Snowy Valleys is a lifestyle destination, offering a strong sense of community, a family-friendly environment and a focus on wellbeing.

There are great medical facilities including multiple doctors, dentists, optometrists and aged care. We have three hospitals in the region with Tumbarumba and Batlow both recently receiving extensive upgrades.The region has several primary and high schools, early education facilities, well- equipped libraries and a TAFE. Charles Sturt University is also only an hour down the road in Wagga Wagga.

The region offers a vibrant rural lifestyle with a diverse range of working and living opportunities.

Housing is affordable and available but moving quickly. Tumbarumba median house prices leapt 17.5% over 12 months up to early 2020, sitting at $235K. Rentals are increasingly popular with the median price - $270 per week.

Despite common misconceptions, there’s a lot to do in country towns, and the Snowy Valleys region is no different. There’s plenty to explore including festivals, galleries, golf, cycling, swimming, fishing, skiing and much more.

With so much to do on your doorstep, you’ll never have a dull day. Best of all, the Snowy Valleys has 4 distinct seasons throughout the year, giving you even more to enjoy.Snowy Valleys - it’s not just a place to visit, it’s a place to call home.
