Snowy Mountain Holidays (est 1985) is located on one acre at Towong, 12km east of Corryong in NE Victoria. The views from the Lower Deck are magnificent, overlooking the Upper Murray River, past rolling foothills and onto the Snowy Mountains Range and Mt Kosciusko, Australia’s highest mountain. We are located in the foothills to the west of the Snowy Mountain Range.
A quiet pastoral wonder world, the Upper Murray River area is mostly a fat cattle and dairy farming area. Here you are in the real thing, away from maddening crowds.
We offer two cottages which can accommodate up to 10 people between them. (If you have 7-10 in your group you will want to book both cottages. In that case, there is an additional cost of $90 per night for the additional cottage.)
They are uniquely constructed with open beams and a cozy atmosphere.
The cottages are fully self-contained with linen provided and air conditioned.
See the Cottage descriptions below for more information.
The eastern views over the river onto the Snowy Mountains is from the lower viewing deck and is a favourite communal spot for all to enjoy.
The views from the cottages face west across rural farmland and rolling hills.
Your pets are welcome here.
They are allowed inside if clean and dry, but are not allowed on any furniture.
Please bring your pet's bedding. There are nice walks and lots of river fun for them.
We are 10 minutes from Corryong, Victoria which has good shopping and a few eateries;

We are small and personalized and do our best to make your stay memorable and pleasant. Our home/lodge is on our 1 acre property, so we are near by to advise and help our guests with the activities they are interested in. We also respect the guests who are happiest to be just by themselves.
