This view is on the Snowy Mountains Highway in New South Wales, Australia. The highway runs across the highland region in the southern part of the State. It starts at its junction with the Hume Highway near Gundagai. From there, the highway runs generally south-east, through the town of Tumut, and up onto the southern highland plateau past Yarrangobilly Caves and the historic Kiandra Goldfields, then down through Adaminaby to Cooma. From Cooma the highway continues in a south easterly direction through Nimmitabel then descends down Brown Mountain to Bemboka then continues on to Bega and Tathra on the south coast of New South Wales.
In winter, much of the highway is subject to heavy snowfalls and the highway is the access route to Selwyn Snowfields ski resort.
Meryll Jeff Palethorpe thank you for this picture.
