Relaxing at Pether Cottage is easy with the benefits and facilities of the ski lodge, golf course and country club and general store within a 10-minute walk. You can sit and watch the birds and kangaroos as well as other native wildlife at dawn and dusk around Talbingo.



Nearby we have a great dining option at the Talbingo Country Club (500 m walk). There is also a supermarket (500 m walk) where you can buy everything you need for your stay. Supermarkets and shops at Tumut are only 45 km drive (30 minutes).

Talbingo offers a lot for visitors apart from the snow regions. There is fishing and water sports, swimming, golf, tennis and bush walking tracks as well as 4WD tracks through Kosciusko National Park and Bargo State Forest. If you feel like kicking back and relaxing with a round of golf, the Talbingo Country Club has a 9-hole course.

Talbingo is at the centre of the mighty Snowy Mountains Scheme – one of the great engineering feats in the world, and the Tumut 3 Power Station which is the largest power station in the Snowy Mountains Scheme and the largest hydro-electric power station in Australia.

The town is the birthplace of award winning author Miles Franklin. Ken Warby currently holds the water speed record for motorboat racing on Blowering Dam.

If you are in the mood for sightseeing, Talbingo is an easy drive from many of our popular tourist attractions.

The Selwyn Snowfields are just under an hour drive through national park. This is the premier learn to ski and family snow recreation area in NSW. Located in the beautiful Kosciusko National Park, you will love learning how to ski, snowboard, snow tube or toboggan. Snow gear can be hired at Talbingo goPLAYoutside.

On your way, make sure you visit Yarrangobilly Caves, one of the most wonderful limestone cave systems in Australia. You can either take a self-guided tour through the South Glory Cave or join a guided tour of the Jersey Cave or Jillabenan Cave. There are a number of other bush walks at Yarrangobilly Caves, including the Thermal Pool Walk where you’ll find a natural spring permanently heated to 27 degrees – this is an amazing experience in winter where you can laze back in the warm water while snow is blanketing the ground around you. Great photo shoot.

The whole Yarrangobilly area is a haven for photographers and artists so make sure you check out the River Walk and the Bluff Lookout as well as the caves.

Another favourite is the Buddong Falls, just a 50 km drive away, crossing the Blowering Reserve and through the Buddong State Forest. Alternatively, you can follow the Blowering Reserve into Tumut and then back down in the Buddong State Forest. Here you will find an easy 400 metre return walk from the picnic area to the top falls, and a steeper 1.6 km return walk to the bottom falls.

For longer walks, there is the Hume and Hovell Walking Track which you can trek parts of the track. This drive is suitable for 4WD only.

The entry into Landers Creek Falls is a short 15-minute drive from us here at Pether Cottage. This is a fairly decent walk so we definitely recommend setting aside a few hours for this one. The falls are a 10 km return walk from the 2WD car park or a 1.6 km return walk from the 4WD car park (closed in winter) along the Cumberland trail. This is a great place for photos – at the end of the trail you will have views that stretch across the escarpment and plunging into the valley below, as well as the clear blue Talbingo Reservoir. At the Talbingo Lookout, you will get a great view of Landers Creek Falls emerging from the cliff.

There are some other fantastic walks and places to visit in the area. Some of our favourites (apart from those we’ve mentioned) include Coolamine Homestead accessed off Long Plain Road along the Blue Waterholes Fire Trail; Blue Waterholes Campground; Clarke Gorge Walking Track; Nichols Gorge Walking Track; and the Kiandra Heritage Track.

If you feel like taking a break from all the walking and hiking in the area, fishing, water sports and swimming are popular with many tourists and locals. You can fish all year round for rainbow trout, brown trout and redfin in Lakes Talbingo, Blowering and Tantangara, while Murray Cod is often caught in Blowering Dam. Fishing supplies can be hired from goPlayoutside, or purchased at the service station and supermarket.

With so many waterways available for use, you can water ski, sail, canoe, kayak and swim on Talbingo and Blowering Lakes during the warmer weather. There are also many local creeks and swimming holes around including Jounama Creek.

We highly recommend goPlayoutside for your snow and leisure equipment hire including cycling, hiking, water sports and snow sports gear. You’ll be out exploring the local area quicker and be hitting the slopes sooner. You’ll also find a four-day weather forecast, snow report and road conditions posted on the shop window each day.

There are some great towns and villages to visit if you feel like exploring the local area.

<strong>WE RECOMMEND TRIPS TO:</strong>

► Kiandra - historic ghost town and walk

► Adelong - historic mining town

► Tumut - the gateway to the Snowy Mountains

► Gundagai - home to Australian folklore, the Dog on the Tuckerbox

► Batlow - famous for cold climate fruit including the popular Batlow apples

► Cabramurra - the highest permanently inhabited town in Australia

► Adaminaby - in long periods of dry weather, you may be able to spot remanets of the old town under Lake Eucumbene

► Cooma - home to the Snowy Hydro Discovery Centre

Surrounded by some of the most sensational scenery, there is so much to see and do in the Snowy Mountains area, and you can experience it all from Pether Cottage.

This house is very run down. Not like the photos. Not worth more than $60 a night. Look else where than this

We appreciated Mark's Feedback. We acknowledge repairs & maintenance. These included a hole in wall from previous guest, frayed carpet, broken timber on outdoor chair and silicon between tiles in bathroom. These issues have all been addressed. Pether Cottage is a Snowy Cottage built in the 50s to 70s giving it the character of the Snowy Mountains. So if you are after a modern style then Pether Cottage is not the place but if you want to go back in time and enjoy the ambience of the Snowy Mountains it is great. Pether Cottage is actually as described and the photos do depict that character. In 2019 we do want to redo the flooring and get a new vanity for bathroom.

Talbingo is a beautiful place, there is plenty to do in summer and winter. Skiing in winter, and lots of bushwalking options all year round. There are 3 beautiful lakes at Talbingo, so you can swim, or bring a boat and go water skiing and fishing.

We have enjoyed our stay in Talbingo, it was the first time for us to be in that area, we liked the house, the colours and just a short walk to the river. Our granddaughters were very happy having their own TV in their room and our little dog appreciated the garden. The house was…

Peter cottage was simple, warm and adequate accommodation for our family of 6. It was a quick hours drive to Selwyn Snowfields and close to caves and thermal pools which we enjoyed.
