WHAT DO YOU NEED TO BRING? - Sheets - Pillow Slips/Cases - Towels - Tea Towels - All food (including condiments) and alcohol - Personal toiletry provisions HISTORY The story of Tambaroora Ski Club is linked to a group of university students in the early 60s. The group were part of a university alpine club - the Kosciusko Snow Revellers - who together applied to build a lodge when land was opened up at Guthega. They missed out then but when Perisher was later opened, their application proved successful in 1960. Fifty members were gathered and a six bed, family-sized two-storey lodge was built with three bedrooms, bathroom and drying room upstairs; and an open plan kitchen, dining and living downstairs with adjacent ski store room, laundry and toilet. The configuration and size has remained unchanged. Five families originally made use of the lodge in rotation and the majority of visitors these days are third generation members of those same families. Sitting quietly in the trees next to Matterhorn Ski Lodge, Tambaroora has escaped dramatic happenings during the last fifty years, holding itself in good shape thanks to the volunteer maintenance. Tambaroora Ski Club's name originates from the Henry Lawson poem, Tambaroora Jim. That ballad was written about a "too generous" Australian bush publican who never turned away a hungry or homeless customer until the bailiff closed him down for insolvent trading.

5/5 Excellent

Awesome holiday. We will definitely stay again.
Awesome holiday. We will definitely stay again.

5/5 Excellent

Awesome location
You couldn't get a better location than this. Whilst the accomodation is basic, it it clean and perfectly adequate with the main feature being the location. It really is ski out, door to lift, in under 5 mins and a short walk back once you've finished on the slopes. It has all the functionality you need, including a drying room and seperate ski/boot storage. As I said, a great location and one that made the holiday extra special by having the luxury of putting the skis on whilst sat on the deck and skiing down to the lifts.
