Festival Description

The Snowy Mountains of Music is held at venues in Perisher Valley, Smiggin Holes and Guthega Alpine Village in the NSW alpine area during the opening weekend of the Australian ski season. It is the opening weekend of the Australian Ski season so it will be cold and there will be snow definitely at the front of the Perisher Valley and hopefully elsewhere! Snow making machines have been installed to ensure skiing is an option as well!

Perisher Valley is about 500km south of Sydney, 210km south of Canberra and 800km north of Melbourne via Tumut. The Festival is presented by the Perisher Resorts Chamber of Commerce with assistance by an experienced team from the Illawarra Folk Festival led by David De Santi. David has directed the Illawarra Folk Festival on 15 occasions. The Festival aims to present a variety of Australian and world, folk, roots, Celtic, acoustic and traditional music, song, dance, poetry and yarnspinning.
