In addition to current developments, Thredbo also recently lodged a development application (DA) with the NSW Department of Planning and Environment for a new accommodation sub-division for the Thredbo Golf Course. This submission has carefully considered the NSW Government's objectives to boost activity in the region whilst respecting and preserving the unique Alpine environment. As Australia’s Best Ski Resort for the past seven years, this development aims to continue delivering experiences that support this position.
